ESPN investigative reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Steve Fainaru have released a new book entitled, League of Denial: The NFL, Concussions and the Battle for Truth, which exposes a two-decade campaign by the NFL to deny or minimize the danger concussions pose to players.
The book reports how the NFL used its immense resources to discredit independent scientists, conducted their own flawed research, and employed an aggressive PR campaign to keep the public in the dark concerning the debilitating neurological effects experienced by many players.
