– JUICED (Dopado)

An extremely controversial book but one that uncovered an open secret in the Major Leagues: the use of steroids. The Cuban former baseball player, José Canseco, wrote this text in 2005 and there he narrated his experience in baseball but not only as a player, but as one of the protagonists of the ‘Era of Steroids’. There he presents names of players who used prohibited substances with the consent of coaches, managers and even the MLB office. This book helped, in large part, to clean up baseball.
