Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
A very thought provoking and sometimes uncomfortable read, written in an entertaining short pulp fiction format it collates interconnecting stories and links them successfully throughout the book. A strong sense of karma is highlighted when the lives of some of the "Gurus" end in sadness and loneliness, but the overall conclusion is that Drugs are used by those who want to succeed, they work in achieving this and most are unlikely ever to be caught whilst at the top. Only when Organisations and Governments no longer need or choose to cover up the issues do any of these "favourite performers" get revealed. Now designer drugs costing thousands of dollars inhabit the higher echelons of sport with limited access to a select few. Also rans or those not "connected" fulfill the "we've caught a doper" quota but overall the superstars of Track, Swimming, NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB get away with it because its in the interests of "Capital". Its sad but if you want make it sport you have to dope....oh and have lots of money.

As steroids become increasingly popular in the UK and playing sport myself i was drawn to this book to see how it had affected the people and a nation that had used steroids, supplements and other performance enhancing products for many years.

This book is an eye opener. I was pleased to discover it wasn't an outright attack on a product which. As many people (Doctors included) would agree. Can be used safely to attain the gains a person desires. As with the book I would not for one second promote steroid use or outright condem it. Although highlighted throughout the book are harrowing stories of how prolonged, excessive steroid use can affect someone.

It is shocking the depth that this drug has gone in the USA where not only professional athletes are taking it under medical supervision for an "edge" but also high school athletes and even high school kids looking to improve their physiques are taking what can be a very dangerous drug.
Even more shocking is what the book highlights about legal supplements and how these can have a similar and in some cases worse negative affect.

If you are an athlete, body builder, fitness enthusiast or even if you are someone who is interested in sociology you MUST buy this book. Honest, frank and impartial this book is an utter joy to read. You will not want to put it down!!!
