Review:

Outstanding...a cornerstone for any baseball collection. (Lee Milazzo The Dallas Morning News)

A life of the 'black Babe Ruth' doubles as a history of the Negro Leagues. (Chicago Tribune)

A vivid, moving account...one fine book! (Charles C. Alexander The Historian)

Considered by many historians to be the best biography of the slugger. (Josh Hamill The New York Times)
