UPMC: Concussion Scandal Ground Zero

published January 2012

$1.49

A 7,000-word investigation of the role in the sports concussion crisis of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and its doctors, principally Joseph Maroon, whose many hats include team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers and medical director of World Wrestling Entertainment. The book chronicles how UPMC’s Sports Concussion Program, launched in 2000, led to the development by Maroon and colleagues of the ImPACT Applications concussion management software company, whose research was underwritten by National Institutes of Health grants. In the era of “concussion awareness” promoted by the National Football League, ImPACT is marketed aggressively to high school and youth programs despite serious questions about its effectiveness.

 OUT OF MY HEAD: My Life In and Out of Football

  by George Visger

 published February 2012

$2.99

George Visger, a member of the San Francisco 49ers’ first Super Bowl champions in 1981-82, has lived with a shunt in his brain even since — a consequence of the many concussions he sustained during his football career. Despite suffering from “water on the brain” and impaired short-term memory, he became a wildlife biologist, a prominent figure in the fight for fair treatment of retired players by the $10-billion-a-year National Football League, and an advocate of solutions to the American football concussion crisis at all levels. This is Visger’s remarkable story.

THE CHINA SYNDROME: How Athletes and Celebrities Get Their Performance-Enhancing Drugs – How a Rogue Prosecutor Bungled Their Bust

  by Irvin Muchnick and Anthony Roberts

published March 2012

$2.99

Performance-enhancing drug use is the scandal in big-time sports and Hollywood that won’t go away. This is the first investigative account of the botched prosecution of Internet human growth hormone dealer Signature Pharmacy, and its implications. The who’s-who cast of celebrities includes Sylvester Stallone and many other famous entertainers and athletes, and the story of the global marketing of HGH takes readers deep inside the treacheries of Olympic politics. Set against the backdrop of the most successful steroid bust in American history, Operation Raw Deal, THE CHINA SYNDROME ties together headline names, political and big-money interests, sociology, and borderless and anonymous intrigue behind HGH trafficking.

PENN STATE IN THE POOL: The Cover-Up of the USA Swimming Youth Coach Sex Abuse Scandal

published April 2012

$1.49

Including facsimile reproductions of primary-source documents from civil lawsuits against the U.S. Olympic Committee’s governing body for competitive youth swimming, this follows the story of widespread sexual misconduct by coaches, which was first reported in 2010 by ABC’s 20/20. The book raises serious questions about whether Chuck Wielgus, the executive director of USA Swimming, has made good-faith reforms of USA Swimming procedures, and whether he has been truthful in public statements about the scandal – including sworn statements, under penalty of perjury, to courts adjudicating claims of victims.
