An extremely compulsive read this. Gripping from start to finish. Anyone with an interest in the Ben Johnson doping scandal couldn't fail to enjoy this. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this book. Makes you realise that Ben Johnson might not have been honest, but few people associated with this race were either. Very interesting account.

Fabulous, informative, fair and balanced! An excellent read. The book provides a comprehensive and enthralling account of the most infamous 100 meters of all time.

Fascinating insight into one of the most controversial races in history. All that is gold aint necessarily shiny ... or is it? Great read and 100% recommended.

Absolutely fantastic overview of the whole doping scandal ... missing only one thing which is the voice of Carl Lewis but apart from that, well worth a read

Great look into the seedy world of...well Carl Lewis mainly. Also pretty relevant as a backdrop to sports and athletics today. Really accessible read.
