Barry Bonds: Baseball Superman is the biography of the game's first four-time Most Valuable Player. In 2001, Bonds broke the greatest record in sports, the all-time single-season home run record held over the years by Babe Ruth, Roger Maris and Mark McGwire, and arguably had the greatest season in baseball history. There is no doubt that for most fans, Barry Bonds is a man of mystery. Author Steven Travers documents the superstar's 2001 campaign as Bonds defied the very bounds of conventional logic and perfected the art of long-ball hitting. Travers also describes Bonds's childhood in Riverside, California, the hometown of his father, Bobby; his successful high school career in the Bay Area, and his All-American career at Arizona State.

About the Author:

Steven Travers is the author of multiple sports books, including "Barry Bonds: Baseball's Superman" and five books in the Triumph/Random House "Essential"sports team series. Formerly a columnist for "StreetZebra" magazine and the "San Francisco Examiner", he lives in California.

From Library Journal:

Having broken the single-season home-run record last year and gotten off to a charging start this season, Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants has established his credentials as one of baseball's all-time greats. Much like his godfather, Willie Mays, Bonds has been the subject of countless articles. Many writers judge him to be incredibly talented but aloof and arrogant. In his gossipy, easy-to-read tale, Travers a former professional baseball pitcher and former sports columnist for the San Francisco Examiner tries to show that Bonds is greatly misunderstood. Travers tends to write about his own experiences as much as those of Bonds as he explores the sports culture that influences this distinguished slugger. Most libraries should have at least one biography of Bonds on the shelves, and until a more authoritative book come along, this light, entertaining volume will do. Paul Kaplan, Lake Villa Dist.
