In Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable: The Paul Haber Story by author Monty Nereim, readers are treated to the fascinating real life story of Paul Haber, a man who survived child abuse, manic depression, personality disorder, and alcohol. He not only survived, but thrived, and ended up one of the world's greatest, albeit highly controversial, handball players. A true wild child in the sport, and in society in general, Paul Haber's dark past led to an equally dark, but at the same time, intriguing and engaging life and career. Fascinating to all who met him, Haber was able to stretch his career long past his prime, and lived quite the life off the generosity of lovers of handball in its very zenith of popularity, the 1960s and '70s.
I very much enjoyed Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable: The Paul Haber Story. Author Monty Nereim has done a stellar job in writing the extremely interesting tale of a man who many in this day might not have heard of. A true tale of difficulty and excess, the life of Paul Haber is one that many people will find incredibly readable and a real page turner. It's almost hard to believe that this story portrays the life of a real man; he's so fantastic and over the top that this story could be a fictional novel. The fact that this is a biography makes it even that much better a read. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more from the very talented author, Monty Nereim, as soon as possible!
