Reviews

Praise for The Doper Next Door "For the voyeur." --Bicycling magazine "Andrew Tilin took on a risky, difficult assignment when he decided to act as his own guinea pig--in a clandestine study of the powerful effects that supplemental testosterone can have on a weekend athlete and family man. The result is amazing: an incredible thrill ride through the back alleys of sports doping, hormone replacement, and anti-aging medicine. The Doper Next Door is participatory journalism at its best." --Alex Heard, editorial director at Outside magazine and author of The Eyes of Willie McGee "Andrew Tilin plunges fearlessly into a culture that we hardly new existed, one in which a hopped-up citizenry's high hopes and false heroes trump all else, and enlists in a first-hand reckoning with the real questions we should be asking about performance enhancing drugs. There are no easy answers--just the challenge of deciding who's cheating whom." --Eric Hagerman, co-author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain "Andrew Tilin's story is as complex and challenging as the issue he tackles head on--the modern, and unfortunately ubiquitous, scourge of performance-enhancing drug use." --Bill Strickland, editor-at-large of Bicycling magazine and author of Ten Points "In The Doper Next Door, Andrew Tilin personally explores the astonishing powers and frightening side-effects of performance-enhancing drugs. The result is an eye-opening, eyebrow-raising, immensely troubling, and yet often hilariously funny sports memoir. In the tradition of George Plimpton, this is a sterling work of participatory journalism--a carefully reported and deeply experienced book that takes us behind the hot outrage of the headlines and into the very bloodstream of the modern sports world." --Hampton Sides, editor-at-large Outside magazine and bestselling author of Hellhound On His Trail "The Doper Next Door is a brain-enhancing drug of a book: harrowing, powerful, freaky, wondrous, and wise. I couldn't put it down." --Daniel Coyle, bestselling author of Lance Armstrong's War and The Talent Code Praise for The Doper Next Door "For the voyeur." --Bicycling magazine "Andrew Tilin took on a risky, difficult assignment when he decided to act as his own guinea pig--in a clandestine study of the powerful effects that supplemental testosterone can have on a weekend athlete and family man.
