Professional Wrestling: Steroids in and Out of the Ring

by Jeri Freedman
 

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8–Corrupt practices and steroid use in the United States are featured in this series about college and professional athletes. Chapters cover issues such as “Wrestling, Steroids, and Death” (Wrestling), “Tainted Legacies” (Baseball), and “The Tommy Chaikin Story” (College Athletics). Report writers will also gain relevant facts from text boxes covering such subjects as “Steroid Side Effects.” Amazing statements from athletes giving reasons why they took illegal drugs are good for discussion topics and will send readers to the primary and secondary sources listed in the extensive bibliographies to see the end results of these confessions. Photos of Roger Clemens testifying before Congress in 2008 make the series current. Each book concludes with thoughts regarding future additional legislation. Useful updates.
