Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable, The Paul Haber Story.

The 1960’s and 70’s provided the early backdrop for Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable, The Paul Haber Story. Haber actually got married–in a handball court! Author, Monty Nereim exposes the scandalous details of the troubled but exceptionally talented Jewish athlete and his outrageous dominance in the sport.
Jail time and even a state mental institution couldn’t abate the triumphs of this controversial handball superstar. A mental condition may account for some of Haber’s unscrupulous behavior, but his training regimen of cigarettes, booze, and carousing defies all logic. His challenge of authority, including the USHA, played out in juicy detail in Sports Illustrated and other magazines, and newspapers nationwide; even the front page of The Wall Street JournalWhen the reigning National Racquetball Champion accepted Haber’s challenge in a “hands vs. racquet” match for $30,000, the fans of both sports went wild. So did the sports writers.
Nereim documents it all. Undiagnosed, Unscrupulous and Unbeatable, The Paul Haber Story is now available at Amazon.com for $18.07. An eBook version sells for $2.99 on BarnesandNobel.com. Signed copies can also be ordered for $20.00 at paulhaberstories.com.

    Great book inspired by a short documentary on Paul.
    The 24 minute film “Against the Wall “inspired the author Monty Nereim to write a totally revealing story of Paul David Haber.

    A book you never want to put down if you are a 1,3,and 4-wall handball player.

  • Scott Sutker says:

    In the book, my Uncle Chester Sutker is mentioned taking out young Haber when he was coming up at age 14 in a national tournament.
    My father Eli who passed last year used to play Haber regularly and buy dinner.
    18 points and serve still couldn’t beat this champ!
