Editors Note The author provides an inside look at his reclusive older brother, baseball slugger Mark McGwire, and their sports-loving family, dispelling Jose Canseco's tales about Mark and offering a detailed account of what really happened to the baseball star--how he got started on steroids, what he used and the dramatic effect the drugs had on his body and baseball history.
Annotation In January of 2010, former baseball slugger Mark McGwire broke his silence and admitted that he had used steroids during his career, perhaps in an effort to avoid being exposed by his own brother in this bizarre tell-all book. Jay McGwire, a former bodybuilder and Mark's younger brother, admits that he turned Mark on to steroids and connected him with a supplier, though he disputes the accusations of McGwire's former teammate Jose Canseco, who has written that Mark was a habitual steroid user. Jay also extends his report on his brother into peculiar territory by detailing some of Mark's temper tantrums, depicting a wild keg party the brothers attended at the home of Mark's manager Tony LaRussa, and claiming that Mark and he often jokingly dressed in women's clothes.
Editors Note 2 In Mark and Me, Jay McGwire provides an inside look at his reclusive older brother, baseball slugger Mark McGwire, and their All-American, sports-loving family, and also offers a detailed entry into the world of steroids. Jay dispels Jose Canseco's steroid tales about Mark, in the process setting the record straight and offering a detailed account of what really happened to Mark; how he got started on steroids, what he used, and the dramatic effect that steroids had on his body and on baseball history.
