From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?An overview of health issues related to sports. Stiefer incorporates numerous stories of contemporary figures to illustrate her basic idea that athletes need to be proactive in educating and protecting themselves from the injuries that result from giving in to pressure to overtrain, take undue risks, or use performance-enhancing drugs. Specific topics covered include sports psychology, substance abuse, nutrition and starvation, dealing with injuries, competition, motivation, and body image. Full-color photos add action to the text, and boxed sidebars add additional information. The author writes clearly and without sensationalism, calmly conveying her message of caution and common sense. Her sources are well documented. Katherine S. Talmadge's Focus on Steroids (21st Century Bks, 1991) gives more information on substance abuse. Lyle J. Micheli covers the same range of subjects in much greater depth in Sportswise (Houghton, 1990), a book loaded with specific information for a wider audience.?Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS
