From the Back Cover:

"Howard Bryant knows more of the subject of steroids than any other reporter I've come across. Juicing the Game is both encyclopedic and a fascinating read."
-Mike Wallace, 60 Minutes

"A serious book about the serious issues baseball has faced over the past decade."
-Bob Costas

"Juicing the Game demonstrates a mastery of baseball history and a narrative power that should make this the Sports Book of the Year. Howard Bryant has produced a compelling insiders' account that will finally enable an American audience to understand the global significance of our first real doping scandal. Here is every citizen's opportunity to see how our hallowed national pastime became entangled in the pharmacological enhancement scenarios that will haunt the 21st century."
-John Hoberman, author of Testosterone Dreams

"I played my whole career in what they're calling the Steroid Era, and now one of the most intelligent, thorough reporters in the business has investigated it."
-David Justice, former major league outfielder

"David Halberstam is the greatest journalist of our lifetime because of his ability to take the present and make it history. That is what Howard Bryant has done with Juicing the Game: Drugs, Power and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball. He explains how the Steroid Era evolved, puts it in its context, and does so as one of America's most thoughtful columnists. Steroids 101."
-Peter Gammons, ESPN
