This is a shocking book about how athletes are often looked at as above the law. They are also subject to abuse by the very people who are entrusted to look out for them. A very disturbing, yet very relevant, book.

I've only skimmed this one, but it takes a look at how hockey indoctrinates kids and young adults with violence and how it carries over to their off-ice behavior. She takes particular aim at junior hockey, played by 15-20-year olds.
