Rate this:
"In The Juice, Will Carroll, an acknowledged authority on baseball's medical problems, calls for a scientific, reasoned approach to the steroid problem. Shunning emotional judgements, he offers a wide-ranging investigation of the drugs, the athletes who use them, the scientific effects and side effects, the testing procedures, and whether drugs have had an impact on the game. He explores the grey area of legal supplements, reviews the law involved in the BALCO case, compares baseball's situation with that of the National Football League, and speculates on the next generation of performance enhancers that may well include gene therapy. In exclusive interviews he profiles the motivations and experiences of professional players, student athletes, drug creators, and those who advocate the legal use of steroids."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
