Is there Corruption in FIFA?

Listen up all you soccer fans, especially those living in Germany.
If you are interested in Football and like watching the World Cup coming up this summer, then you'd probably interested in the new book "Foul" which is currently being banned in Switzerland.

Ironically, FIFA which is based out of Zurich, Switzerland is banning the book because through a temporary court injunction. But one can find a copy of the book anywhere else in the world according to the UK publisher.

The book was written by Andrew Jennings and details serious allegations of corruption within Fifa. Who wouldn't be a bit worried with a title like "Foul! The Secret World of Fifa: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals". For Fifa, they have stepped in because they claim the allegations to be false or misrepresented. In 2002, allegations like this from the president swarmed the Fifa association. I'm wondering what people have heard about the book so far.
