Billion Dollar Fantasy
The High-stakes Game Between FanDuel & DraftKings That Upended Sports in AmericaBook - 2019
"The inside story of the rise, fall, and rise of FanDuel and DraftKings--two companies that began as obscure start-ups and, seemingly overnight, became billion dollar companies, and just as quickly found themselves the target of the FBI and Department of Justice and the center of a national scandal. Veteran sportswriter Albert Chen draws on candid, unprecedented interviews with every key player in tech, sports, gambling, and the fantasy leagues to create a breakneck narrative around a group of entrepreneurs, players, and gamblers. [This book] recounts the origins of modern gambling and fantasy sports in America, and follows the unlikely rise of the fantasy sports world through the lens of the two startups at the center of the story."
