'This is a timely book, and one that, being written in very easy-to-read prose, takes the fight right to the enemy.' -- Guardian
'Foul Play offers an impressive extended essay into sport's many failings.' -- Metro
'The book is provocative, well-researched and turns up a lot of interesting and amusing anecdotal evidence.' -- Daily Telegraph
'It is eminently readable, humorous in parts, breathtakingly cynical in others, but throughout argues that sport is bad for mind, body and soul.' -- Scotland on Sunday
'Entertaining, thought-provoking and well worth a read.' -- Scotland on Sunday
'Well, Joe Humprhreys is mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore, and has written a shibboleth-busting polemic to prove it. No opportunity is overlooked not only to debunk popular assumptions of the social and personal utility of sport but to expose the various hypocrisies and inconsistencies of the major sports' governing bodies.' -- Irish Times
