Simon Spotlight Entertainment (SSE), a division of Simon & Schuster, announced today that it will publish Jose Canseco's VINDICATED, the follow-up to his #1 New York Times bestseller Juiced. Written with bestselling author and screenwriter Pablo F. Fenjves, the book is scheduled for publication on March 31, 2008.
Canseco's first book was largely responsible for breaking open the steroid scandal in baseball. VINDICATED goes even further, looking at the state of baseball post-scandal and Mitchell Report.
Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President and Publisher of SSE, said "Since Juiced was published four years ago, the issue of steroids in baseball has only gotten bigger. VINDICATED is a compulsively readable book that should act as a call to action for Major League Baseball."
"Believe it or not, Juiced just scratched the surface of the steroid issue for me," Canseco said. "I still have a lot more to say to help save the game I love."
Bergstrom negotiated the deal, which includes world rights, with Bret Saxon of TMP.
