Summary
When Jose Canseco burst into the Major Leagues in the 1980s, he changed the sport--in more ways than one. No player before him possessed his mixture of speed and power. He shattered the mold of the out-of-shape baseball player and ushered in a new era of superathletes who looked like bodybuilders, made outrageous salaries, and enjoyed rock-star lifestyles. And the ticket for this ride? Steroids. Canseco cultivated a secret just about everyone in major league baseball knew about, one that would alter the game and the way we view our heroes forever
Summary
The star outfielder of the Oakland Athletics reveals how he used anabolic steroids to enhance his own performance and how he passed that knowledge on to coaches and fellow players, transforming baseball into today's record-breaking sport
