More About the Author

I'm a biochemist with over 20 years research and teaching experience. I obtained a PhD in 1989, a Medical Research Council Fellowship in 1992, and a Wellcome Trust University Award in 1995. In 1997 I won the Melvin H. Knisely Award for 'Outstanding international achievements in research related to oxygen transport to tissue' . In 1999 I became a Professor in the Centre for Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Essex, UK, where I am the current Head of Research. My research, funded by the British Olympic Association and others, include testing muscle oxygen monitoring devices to aid UK athletes in their training for the Olympics

In 2008, I edited a book for sports science students entitled "Drugs and Ergogenic Aids to Improve Sport Performance". Run, Swim, Throw Cheat is my first book aimed at the general public. Find out more about my research at www.profchriscooper.com and follow my blog at www.runswimthrowcheat.com

Written from a biochemist scientist's point of view I can't think of a better resource on current performance enhancement technology. When the author opines on the social significance of doping he make a few startling pronouncements which are right on.

This book covers not only the what of PED's but the science behind the why and how each substance came to be. It also covers where each drug succeeds and fails to make the predicted changes and why. Very technical and thorough resource and a must have for today's trainer or athlete.
