No Grey Areas: By Joseph N Gagliano

index

“No Grey Areas is compelling memoir of Joseph N. Gagliano who orchestrated one of the largest shaving scandals in sports history. Within the pages readers will get a backstage pass into Joe’s personal story of greed, the consequences and his harrowing ride to redemption.”    https://walkerputsche.wordpress.com/

Before I read this book I had very little knowledge about the shaving scandal of 1994 and the sports gambling industry. Gagliano recounts and shares his story through a first-person narrative which is brutally honest and easy to follow, from the onset of the scandal to the devastating aftermath and how his life changed forever after it.

To be honest, I am not really a sports enthusiast but I was impressed by this book, it is well-written, compelling and an honest confession of a man who made some really poor choices when his fortune disappeared through “grey areas” of selfishness, greed, scandal and corruption.  Galliano’s unique and excruciating journey to atonement is inspirational and I would highly recommend it readers who enjoy memoirs about the sports industry.
