"One of the best books ever written on the subject of sport in America, which is to say a book that is about a great deal more than sport."oA.O. Scott, Newsday "A risky and brilliant book... It is an emotional journey into Jock Culture's heart of darkness. Shields is willing to write himself naked about the hungers and envies that move across the grandstand like the wave."oRobert Lipsyte, New York Times "Black Planet accomplishes a rare feat by tackling race head on."oSteven Hill, Chicago Tribune
