This review is from: Marion Jones: Life in the Fast Lane - An Illustrated Autobiography (Hardcover)
In this cover up masquerading itself as an inspirational tale we get a story of overcoming the odds to win it all. I'll acknowledge Marion's inner strength and determination but there is one humongous glaring omission. Never once does she mention BALCO or her use of steroids. Those are the things that propelled her to stardom in the 2000 Olympics.
If you're a young girl looking for a fictionalized, albiet loosely based in reality hero, then this is the book for you. If you're looking for a truthful account of one of track and fields most celebrated athletes, you're looking in the wrong book.
