In Juicing the Game
, award-winning journalist Howard Bryant offers the only big-picture look at the insidious manner in which performance-enhancing drugs infested baseball as the games leaders stood idly by, reaping the rewards.
Combining hard-hitting investigative journalism with interviews with baseball heavyweights such as Jason Giambi, Commissioner Bud Selig, union head Donald Fehr, and Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson among many others, Juicing the Game is the definitive book on both the steroid scandal and the era it has irreversibly tainted.
From the award-winning sports journalist and author of "Shut Out" comes a groundbreaking history of steroid use in major league baseball.
A rich and measured tale of the last dishonest decade . . . No more comprehensive, balanced or fair account exists. Bryant carefully and powerfully builds his case. The self-inflicted catastrophe could have no better chronicler.”
Los Angeles Times
If there ever was a must read sports book of its time, this is it. Because of the undeniable truths it tells, Bryants book is essential reading.”
