great book told by the man himself
Great story of a great iconic figure!
Excellent photos, difficult for a 10 year old, but dedicated to young boys. What better way than in his own words. This is a book he'll probably pick up later. It's out of print, so it will be hard to find.
Great book,
Nice read if you like baseball.
Babe Ruth is the most amazing athlete of the 20th Century. What kind of records would he have set if he knew it was so important? His only drug use was beer, and the nitrates in the hotdogs. Wow! What a guy!.
This is a book about a legend. He more than any other player changed the game and made it America's national pasttime. After being the greatest pitcher of his time for Boston he was traded to the Yankees where he went on to begin making the home run synonymous with his name. In the house that Ruth built' Yankee Stadium along with Lou Gehrig he lead the Yankees of the 1920's to a string of pennants and World Series. Both on and off the field the Babe was outsized, and seemed to be unstoppable. He was the greatest player the game ever had and probably ever will have. He was in some sense a babe all his life, childlike and uncontrollable but he was also famous for acts of kindness, including the famous homerun hit on request by a young fan fatally ill. His love of the game and his love of life are now apart of America's legendary heritage.
This is a great auto biography that I read as a boy some 45 years ago. I can remember the tears in my eyes as I finished the final paragraph. Bob Considine evidently had the full trust of Ruth and as an experienced journalist weaved a fascinating first person account of the greatest ride to fame in American History. It is primarily aimed at boys from 12 years and on. Incredibly, it is now out of print despite being for me the best baseball book (and I have read many) I've ever read.
