“Diligent, detailed, and overpowering. This is not a book of conjecture: It’s one of bootstrap journalism.”

 —New York magazine

 

The New York Times calls sports journalist Selena Roberts’s blistering biography, A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez, “Important…devastating…merciless.” A columnist for Sports Illustrated, Roberts pulls no punches in her tough and brilliant New York Times bestseller, an exploration of the multi-million-dollar Yankees slugger’s checkered life and career. A-Rod is an eye-opening, unputdownable look at one of the greatest—and most flawed—players in today’s game.

  • Important ... devastating ... merciless.

  • “Her reporting is diligent, detailed, and overpowering. This is not a book of conjecture: It’s one of bootstrap journalism.”  

    New York magazine 

  • “L.J. Ganser always establishes a consistent tone in his narrations—whether he’s delivering a novel or a nonfiction investigative piece like this. Here he maintains a steady, interested tone—almost, yet not quite, bewildered—as he details Rodriguez’s steroid use, relationships, and calculated public relations efforts. Fans will glean insights as the author reveals a man whose need for acceptance dominates his life.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Alex Curro | 2/15/2014

    " A-Rod by Selena Roberts is a great book about the life story of Alex Rodriguez. This book takes you through the life of A-Rod himself and his path to the majors. This book is fantastic for a baseball lover who likes to read biographies about their favorite players. It also takes you into what happened with the steroids and gives you insight from other players about other players. This book is great and i would recommend it to everyone wanting to learn the life story of perhaps one of the greatest players of all time. "

    " It was definitely entertaining but who knows how much of it is true! I found the lack of proof by the author quite annoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jack Waters | 1/27/2014

    " It was a good read about a great ballplayer fallen victim to many problems, self-inflicted or otherwise cast upon him from outside influences. The book gives enough of a glimpse for the reader to feel sorry for A-Rod, whose career has always been under a microscope with unbelievable expectations always prevalent in everything he does, from his statistics to his on-deck antics. I'm a fan of A-Rod and was thinking the book would be anti-A-Rod, but it humanized him without giving him any shortcuts that his PR-molded persona consistently tries to portray. "
