"Ms. Roberts is an enterprising investigator....[Her] merciless portrait of Rodriguez as a needy, phony, preening, petulant, self-absorbed narcissist...will resonate with readers of THE YANKEE YEARS"
"We learn many of Rodriguez's secrets in Roberts's meticulously reported psychological profile, which will give fans no comfort about the man who's contracted to be a Yankee through the 2017 season."
From the Publisher
Annotation Hot on the heels of Joe Torre's 2009 bestseller THE YANKEE YEARS, Selena Roberts's tell-all biography of Alex Rodriguez, baseball's highest-paid whipping boy, should provide a productive cache of fresh material for New York's rabid tabloids. Rushed to press to capitalize on A-Rod's reluctant admission to steroid use, a story which Roberts first reported, the book also delves into many of the superstar's off-the-field shenanigans, including his lavish nightlife, trysts with strippers, and questionable real estate dealings. Somehow, while surrounded by a perpetual dervish of media furies haranguing him, Rodriguez continues to excel on the diamond and is amassing statistics that will certainly rank him among the game's greatest, and most vilified, players of all-time.
Editors Note Offers a revealing look at the Yankees player, from his traumatic childhood to his strained relationships with teammates to the latest information on his steroid use, in a book that asserts that the enigmatic baseball star is torn between his obligation to his family and his insatiable hedonism.
