Grade 7 Up In his timely examination of a seemingly growing problem, Harris reviews the various apsects of substance abuse in all levels of sports. He discusses some of the drugs involved, speculates on the causes of their seemingly widespread abuse, and tells of the consequences of involvement with drugs. He also summarizes the efforts that are being made to correct abuses, and outlines the controversy that some of these steps have caused. Harris addresses abuse of both recreational drugs and drugs used to increase performance. This is a strong selection, better organized, better written, and more up-to-date than Edward Dolan's Drugs in Sports (Watts, 1986). Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, Ill.
