Summary
"Chris Cooper, a biochemist and sports scientist, describes the variety of substances, from the everyday to the exotic, that can affect human performance: how they work; which are illegal; and how they can be detected. He also raises the associated ethical issues, which look likely to multiply as the possibilities of gene manipulation become a reality."--Jacket
