The unflappable dark prince of his sport was unfazed by authority. Time in jail, probation and commitment to a state mental institution provided colorful gossip but little change in the unbeatable champ. Even his lucky escape from the Chicago Mob had negligible impact on Paul Haber, until later. His clashes with the very hands that fed him played out in juicy detail in Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, Life, and Ace magazines, and newspapers coast-to-coast, including the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Haber's story is an intriguing chronicle of a gifted but cursed superstar; the unlikely paradigm of legend and tragedy.
Undiagnosed Unscrupulous and Unbeatable, The Paul Haber Story is based on the life of a quick-witted Jewish kid who battled child abuse, manic depression, personality disorder and alcohol to become one of history's greatest and most controversial handball players.
