Providing a first-person perspective on the multibillion-dollar steroids industry, this narrative examines the factors that have placed it daily in the mainstream news headlines. From the doctors hired to attack steroid use, only to turn around and become advocates for the drugs within the industry, to education and misinformation about steroids, the history and evolution of the drugs are captured here from the vantage point of an insider who knows everything and everyone in the black market and underground. His voice comes straight from the middle of the controversy—from his own use of the drugs, his relationships with steroid-pushing websites, and his ongoing research into government interventions and the legal and illicit sides of the medical system.
