    This audiobook is the window into the underground world of cheating at the highest levels, which set off a frenzy of activity and hand-wringing in the offices of Major League Baseball and Congress. Through the authors' pursuit of sources and documents, they were able to open for public view a world in which elite athletes trade money and risk their health for the edge that will allow them to run faster, hit harder, and compete longer, and then cash in on the fame and wealth.

    Overall

    Great book, well researched and narrated. I hadn't realize the extent of doping in sports. It's amazing how some of the athletes alleged with doping in the book are still doing the stuff and getting caught.

    Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    "Scam"
    Overall

    How much was Stephen King paid for his endorsement of this book ? This was absolutely, by far, the worst book I have ever read/listened to in my life. But I did learn something, I'll never purchase anything written by Scott Smith again.
