Baseball is facing a crisis as it is riddled with accusations of steroid and drug abuse, testing, and debates about whether or not records will need to include an asterisk. In attorney David Ezra's new book Asterisk, he explores the public trials of the baseball community and debates questions such as Are accusations of steroid use justified? Or do today's well-trained players, whose teams play in newly constructed ballparks, shatter records because the game has changed?

This was a GREAT book. It does not sugar-coat Bonds instead it challenges the beliefs/charges. It gives very clear and obvious flaws to the 'evidence' and 'belief' that Bonds cheated. We will not know if he cheated until he admits it. The trial will not bear out whether he actually cheated. Read this book and open your eyes to the possibility that we witnessed one of the most amazing athletes that every played the hardest game every invented. Under no circumstances should any man, woman or child be 'convicted' just because they are the biggest jerks on the planet. Ted fell into that category and he was not nearly as revered as he should have been. Unfortunately, once the bell has been rung...it cannot be UNrung.
Whether you like Bonds or not...whether he has really taken steroids or not...this is one engaging book. For a first time author, this is well written. Once I started I couldn't put the book down. By the end, I'm willing to say he is innocent until proven guilty. Great insight. Mike Schmidt forward is good intro. It makes the 'Shadows' book like it was written by a first grader. Good job...
It's the best book about sports I have read.
