I suppose when this book came out it was quite revealing. Canseco did name names and is specific about the type of PEDs he used and abused. The book is humorous at times and thus has its moments but Canseco's insecurities sometimes shines through and shows what a fragile ego he has. It's not a bad read for those who have an interest in learning the history of how/when/why baseball players started juicing.

The most revealing part has to be, besides Canseco's own use, about Mark McGwire. I don't know about anyone else but I KNEW Big Mac was juicing, it was obvious and the whole thing with the Andro bottle in his locker was a ruse which Canseco's book points out.

The book that started the steriod talk and helped clean up baseball.

True he does go into a lot of detail on stuff but as opposed to a reasearched book it is just a hasbeen rambling telling stories. The book does not follow any sort of pattern or time line. It is humours at times but not really worth a read. If you want a good baseball read try pete roses book.

Most of the details have come and gone from the headline news, but this is still an eye-opener. Better than most sports books.
