Synopsis

Getting Ahead: Drugs, Technology, and Competitive Advantage by Lori Hile

Getting Ahead: Drugs, Technology, and Competitive Advantage explores the drive that pushes athletes to be the strongest, fastest, and best. How has developing technology helped athletes gain an edge? Has advanced technology in sport helped athletes to better reach their potential, or has it harmed sport? What are the ethical debates surrounding legal and illegal drugs such as steroids? Exciting and varied case studies are used throughout this book to illustrate issues and concepts.
