Steroids have been made out to be the modern plague of the day. The media chastize athletes who use them and sentence users to an early death. Outspoken critics claim there's a laundry list of horrific, irreversible side effects. But the truth, as HBO may have summed up best in their special programming on the subject, is that despite all the smoke, there's no fire. Hardly a spark.

In Dunks, Doubles, Doping, Nathan Jendrick offers a researched, unbiased view on anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. The truth is that steroids didn't kill Lyle Alzado, Steve Bechler or Ken Caminiti. The truth is that steroids won't be the cause of death for Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, or Marion Jones--athletes accused of drug use. The one thing that steroids are killing though, is sports. Steroids have ruined the landscape of competition not by their chemical properties, but by the massive hysteria that surrounds them in the media, in gyms and in the stands of stadiums. And it's all in the name of money. Fans are turned off by the scandals and adolescents, who might be the only ones at a real health risk by using steroids, are putting the future of sports on their shoulders, and on the line, by trying to get big unnaturally too early.

Dunks, Doubles, Doping includes interviews with top athletes, physicians and personalities while covering and revealing the truth behind steroids and confronting the new horizon of cheating: Gene doping. 3D is a can't-miss if you want the truth behind America's latest sports scandal.

From the Back Cover:

Dunks, Doubles, Doping is not a pro-steroid book.
Nor is it an anti-steroid book.
Instead, it's anti-hypocrisy and anti-subterfuge. Dunks, Doubles, Doping sets the record straight on the real risks of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, and it makes public facts that have, for the most part, been misrepresented in the media.
When the next century rolls around, where will steroids stand in a list of substances that are most harmful to humans? According to author Nathan Jendrick, steroids will fall far below Tylenol, Fen-Phen, Vioxx--and even Viagra. Reports of death and internal destruction abound when the topic of steroid use surfaces, but the vast majority of the general public would be shocked if they had the opportunity to see the truth. Here is that opportunity.
Dunks, Doubles, Doping cuts through the fog and invites readers to learn the truth about the reported dangers of steroids. Perhaps more important, readers will also find an examination of the real steroid problem: How they are killing American athletics. And it isn't necessarily the drugs that are doing the most damage. It's the hype, the misleading information, the lies, and the inconsistencies in policy.
Dunks, Doubles, Doping includes interviews with some of the best Olympic athletes in the world-including Gary Hall Jr. and Megan Quann-top steroid legal analyst and lawyer Rick Collins, bodybuilding personality Gregg Valentino, and top
physicians and psychologists such as Dr. Roberto Olivardia, PhD, Dr. Theodore Friedmann, PhD, Dr. Gary Nolan, PhD, Dr. Roland Carlstedt, and many more.
As much as the world may like to believe it, steroids are not the final frontier. Dunks, Doubles, Doping confronts and explains a new method of cheating called "gene doping," so that every reader knows what's coming next.
