Overview

“Diligent, detailed, and overpowering. This is not a book of conjecture: It’s one of bootstrap journalism.”

 —New York magazine

 

The New York Times calls sports journalist Selena Roberts’s blistering biography, A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez, “Important…devastating…merciless.” A columnist for Sports Illustrated, Roberts pulls no punches in her tough and brilliant New York Times bestseller, an exploration of the multi-million-dollar Yankees slugger’s checkered life and career. A-Rod is an eye-opening, unputdownable look at one of the greatest—and most flawed—players in today’s game.

Editorial Reviews

Nicholas Dawidoff
Ms. Roberts is an enterprising investigator, and her hastily constructed but important account contains enough dispiriting content to make a reader grateful that A-Rod is less a full biography than a first-rate magazine profile…Ms. Roberts's merciless portrait of Rodriguez as a needy, phony, preening, petulant, self-absorbed narcissist…will resonate with readers of The Yankee Years, the recent memoir by Joe Torre, Rodriguez's former manager, and Tom Verducci
