The book features a collection of art, poems, and essays submitted by the youth who have participated in The Foundation for Global Sports Development's Culture, Education, Sportsmanship and Ethics Program (CESEP). CESEP provides educational outreach and promotes drug prevention awareness to countries around the world. The new book provides a fresh perspective and gives a voice to youth's perception on ethics, sportsmanship, fair-play, and drug-free sport. With over 600 submissions the book provides both a delightful and warming insight into these children's perspective on what it means to be a good sport and how the use of performance enhancing drugs impacts sport and ethics.

About the Author:

Dr. Ungerleider works actively with The Foundation for Global Sports Development, a non-profit organization which promotes sportsmanship, education, fair play, ethics and drug free sport. The Foundation partners with several Olympic federations to assist with drug prevention activities. Dr. Ungerleider has been an active researcher. He served as the Principal Investigator on a number of privately and federally funded research projects. He has written many articles and authored four books. His recent book, Faust's Gold, which discussed 25 years of illegal doping in the former East Germany, has been cited widely in the main-stream press and has been the topic of two documentary films. A licensed psychologist in Oregon, Dr. Ungerleider received his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Texas, Austin, and his masters and doctorate degree from the University of Oregon.

Review:

"I was truly honored to have received this particularly since you acknowledge our contribution to the fight against doping in sport. You and your team should be extremely proud of the efforts you all have made in this endeavor as well as your past commitment to keep the true spirit of sport alive for all athletes. You might find it interesting that my 6-year old daughter and I went through the book together while watching the U.S. Olympic swimming and track and field trials. The book certainly made my job as a parent easier and my daughter was inspired by it."
--Travis Tygart

"This CESEP book, a compilation of essays and art from children around the world is a great assest to the campaign for clean, fair and drug free sport."
 --Richard W. Pound Q.C.
