From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- Rarely is a nonfiction title on a medical subject aimed at young athletes so readable, useful, and timely. With the international attention recently focused on the abuse of anabolic steroids by world-class athletes at the Olympics, interest is high. There are no other books for this age on the subject, let alone any so up-to-date and fascinating. The text is well spaced, and the photos are in vibrant color. Bold headings and eye-catching quotes ("Unless something is done soon, international sport will be a competition between circus freaks manipulated by international chemists") are set off to draw the eye from page to page, which will appeal to reluctant readers. Appendixes include drug profiles that tell levels of addictiveness and harmful side effects and an address list of 13 U.S. organizations. Mohun sympathizes with current attitudes toward winning, but leaves no doubt that drug use is considered dishonorable cheating. The great photos and beautiful book design emphasize athletes from many countries at their prime, who have used drugs and been disgraced, injured, or have died. An excellent choice for libraries; and a compelling topic for all who compete, from the home-town billiard champ to the Olympic gold medal winner. --Anne Osborn, Riverside Public Library, Calif.
