Each chapter delves into a tale of dubious choices, some impulsive and some deliberate, and poses important queries about the inner workings of the human conscience. Did these athletes ever stop to think about the long-lasting effects of their decisions, or did they just expect they would get away with it? Did they go to bed at night, blissfully unaware of the chaos they had wrought upon themselves and those around them?
