The theme of this book is that cheating not only destorys the integrity of sports, it destroys the integrity of the athlete and everyone who either supports cheating of allows it to happen. Majors topics such as "athletics is over the edge," "performance- enhancing substances," "victory with honor," "negative impact of marketers," and "accountability" are discussed in reference to the "cheat pushers" who must not be allowed access to those who love athletics.
