The Untold Story of the Duke Lacrosse Case and the Lives It Shattered
Publication Date: July 2007
What began as an off-campus team party with two hired strippers accelerated into a rape investigation-one that exposed prosecutorial misconduct, shoddy police work, an administration's rush to judgment, and the media's disregard for the facts. In It's Not About the Truth, Mike Pressler, the former Duke University lacrosse team's coach, and bestselling author Don Yaeger expose vivid details, including the day Pressler was fired.
Don Yaeger is a former associate editor for Sports Illustrated. He is the author of seven books and coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Under the Tarnished Dome as well as the critically acclaimed Pros and Cons: The Criminals Who Play in the NFL. Mike Pressler was the head coach of the Duke University lacrosse team. Under his leadership, the team won three Atlantic Coast Conference championships and ten NCAA tournament berths, and it made an appearance in the 2005 Division I men's lacrosse championship game. He now coaches the lacrosse team at Bryant College in Rhode Island. Reader of over four hundred audiobooks, Dick Hill has won three coveted Audie Awards and been nominated numerous times.
