Barry Bondâ€™s attorney has gone after everything about the book Game of Shadows except for the facts laid out in the book. Now Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada have their book in paperback with a new afterword.
But as the book is released this week in a paperback edition with a new afterword, the most important constant in the 12-month wake of Shadows is this: Bonds has not challenged a single fact in the book. It stands as an encyclopedia of this doping era in general and of Bonds’ massive doping regimen in specifics.
But by far my favorite part of this afterword, that lays out in a simple terms (that can be made into a table) information that makes you go, â€œThat just canâ€™t be natural.â€

And as the authors write:
“The changes in his foot and head size,” they write, “were of special interest: medical experts said overuse of human growth hormone could cause an adult’s extremities to begin growing, aping the symptoms of the glandular disorder acromegaly**.”
The book (if true) leaves one believing Bonds is the biggest doper in the game and a idiot with the flaxseed oil story. I wonder if Bonds wanted to defend his good name why he wouldnâ€™t sue the pants off the authors, much like Lance Armstrong did successful with every accusation of doping against him. Maybe Bonds doesnâ€™t because they are right.
