Gr. 6-9. This brief entry in the new Drugs series argues persuasively against anabolic steroid use. Succinct paragraphs focus on popular and once-respected athletes destroyed by steroids, including examples of anonymous abusers who either succumbed to the fatal effects (by dying themselves or killing others because of "roid rage") or recovered from their addiction. The information is clear, and the tone is direct without being overly sensational or didactic. Like other books within the publisher's MyReportLinks.com imprint, this is intended for use in combination with online resources available through a dedicated Web site. Unfortunately, a design template that includes Internet browser "frames" and visuals taken from related Web sites results in cluttered pages that may turn off some YAs before they get to the useful text. Other frequently abused substances covered by the series include marijuana, Ecstasy, and heroin. Roger Leslie
