In Juicing the Game, sportswriter Howard Bryant does an impressive job at chronicling baseball's infamous steroid era from roughly 1995-2004. By providing important context to readers who may not know about the toxic relationship between players and owners that is as old as the game itself, the book shows why it was so difficult to implement an effective testing policy in MLB. Also, while rightly pointing the main finger at roids, he also writes about other issues which led to a hitter's paradise: a shrinking strike zone, smaller ball parks and batters armed with video and expert coaches that have greatly improved their ability to swing. Everyone, from greedy owners who looked the other way to his fellow sportswriters are implicated in this book. Excellent material for fans who are interested in learning about this complicated chapter in baseball history.
