Andrew Jennings' 2006 book on FIFA is selling for crazy prices on the secondary market
Last week's indictments of 14 participants in various FIFA corruption has apparently made soccer's corporate misbehavior a hot topic.
Just check out the prices for Scottish investigative reporter Andrew Jennings' 2006 book, Foul!: The Secret World of Fifa: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals. As of 11:20 a.m. Wednesday, Amazon had three listings for the paperback book: Two new copies at $1,496.01 and $2,093.11 respectively and one used copy at—are you ready?—$3,783.61.
If you're not willing to spend that much for a nine-year-old book, there is a hardcover available for "only" $470.70.
Jennings' book has been credited with blowing the lid off FIFA corruption and eventually leading to last week's indictments and the resignation of FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
