Spitting in the Soup: Inside the Dirty Game of Doping in Sports
Spitting in the Soup investigates the history of drugs in sport–athletes turning to dope to go faster, longer, and higher. From pro cycling to the NFL, Major League Baseball to track and field, Spitting in the Soup reveals why elite and amateur athletes have always turned to pharmaceuticals. The book also explores why, in a society that encourages the wholesale use of performance enhancing drugs like Viagra and the amphetamine Adderall, it is so difficult to change athletes’ chemical ways.
