American Icon Clemens Steroids Americas
American Icon is a terrific piece of team investigative journalism on the steroid (codeword: "B-12") era in professional sports and the sad demise of the reputation of pitcher Roger Clemens. Whether or not Clemens perjured himself before Congress, he emerges in this fast-paced indictment as a liar, a womanizer, and a bully travelling in the guise of a Cy Young Award winning hurler. Clemens appears to have used steroids and HGH on numerous occasions, resulting in his middle-age bulked-up comeback on the mound. This fine book paints a sad picture of how the desire to win at all costs and to be a sports hero forever collided with the relentless process of aging, poignant in the case of a fatherless boy who grew up in the Texas culture of sports, body building, and then steroid trafficking. A bit long and repetitive, yes, we know the story from the sports pages, but a fabulous investigation of an American sports tragedy. Buy it, read it and weep.Get your American Icon Clemens Steroids Americas Now!
