This is an intriguing story of wealth, scandal, and redemption.

Joe Gagliano is a former trader of bonds futures, with the Chicago Board of Trade, and architect of one of the biggest sports point-shaving scandals in American history – the subject of his new book, No Grey Areas: The Inside Story of the Largest Point Shaving Scandal in History and the Consequences Thereafter.  

At the age of 24, Gagliano quarterbacked the ASU basketball point-shaving scandal, still one of the largest scams in sports history. Not only did he outsmart the sports betting world, as an entrepreneur Joe managed to create a number of legitimate and highly successful businesses.
