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.
