Description

Separating fact from myth, Kalb attempts to determine which of these long-held conspiracy theories hold water, and which ones fall flat under scrutiny. Ranking the conspiracies from 1 to 30 and the likelihood of each conspiracy from 1 to 5, Kalb boldly asks: - Did baseball avoid integration in the 1930s and 1940s with an unwritten agreement? - Was Super Bowl III a fixed game? - Did Sonny Liston throw both of his fights vs. Muhammad Ali? - Was the NBA's first-ever draft lottery fixed? - Why did Michael Jordan really retire from basketball the first time? - Are some NASCAR race outcomes too good to be true? - Did the New England Patriots cheat their way to a dynasty? - What really happened at the 1921 Kentucky Derby? - Why weren't any Japanese players signed to major league contracts from 1965-1995? - And much more!
