From Our Editors

This scathing exposé by acclaimed sports writers Dan Wetzel and Don Yaeger uncovers competing sneaker companies’ exploitation of college, high school and junior basketball players. Sole Influence illustrates that the relentless pursuit of future star players by these billion-dollar businesses constitutes all-out war on American city playgrounds. Driven by the potential millions in sales generated by endorsements, the shoe companies bribe talented students with perks, without regard to the harmful effects these unethical tactics may have on America’s youth.

Appropriate for ages: 13
