AMERICAN ICON: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America’s Pastime
By Teri Thompson, Nathaniel Vinton, Michael O’Keeffe, and Christian Red

AMERICAN ICON, a book by the award-winning New York Daily News Sports Investigative Team, portrays Roger Clemens as both a compromised player and a person of questionable conduct, a man destroyed by his own pride, dishonesty, and judgment. The book explores Clemens’s use of banned substances, details his dalliances with women, and suggests that he may have perjured himself while testifying before Congress.
