It’s March, and the Madness is on! As you agonize over your brackets and watch every development in the games with bated breath, take some time in between quarters to peruse The Cartel: Inside the Rise and Imminent Fall of the NCAA. The book is an excoriating investigation by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Taylor Branch into the NCAA, which generates billions of dollars in revenue, and yet not a cent comes down to the “student athletes” sweating on the court. Game on.

You can purchase the book here.
