Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports | [Mark Fainaru-Wada, Lance Williams]

Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports

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.

Publisher's Summary

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 that comes only to those at the very top of their games.

What the compelling newspaper articles weren't able to provide is the kind of narrative and inside-baseball look at BALCO that only a book or audiobook could explore. This is the definitive account of the sports story of our times, as written by the journalists who blew it open.

    Overall
    "THE book on steroid use by pro athletes."

    This book definitely shows how so many top athletes used steroids that were undetectable for many years or used pro hormones that were still unregulated at the time but are now considered steroids.

    The whole concept how it came to be is what makes this book so appealing.
