I'm afraid my first reaction on reading the title was: "Winners aren't tempted to quit!"

I see on reading the precis of the plot that this isn't quite fair; however, I don't know why they expect people to spend money on a moralistic book which states its moral in the title. Surely this would be more lucrative as a poster?

My usual custom when posting negative comments is to finish up with an undercutting statement about my own biases; but I really can't muster the grace even to hint that another view is viable here. Let the jocks play soccer and us geeks write, and we'll see who has the longer career.
