This book was the first, full in-depth bio ever written about Babe Ruth. The author, Robert Creamer, who was known as the dean of Sport's Illustrated's baseball writers, spent yrs ferreting out the whole and true story of the fabulous Babe. This was truly a labor of love. He traveled the country interviewing friends, teammates, family and anyone who had something to contribute to what is an America saga of success. The Babe was known as a poor bad boy. He was sent off to a boys school in Baltimore. From there his love of baseball took him to the heights of American sports. This book has it all. The games, the gargantuan eating and drinking, the flaring temperament, the charm, the women, and all the human tragedies and glories. This is the most researched book, separating the wheat from the chaff, the true from the false, and the character from the legend. Sure to please any baseball, Yankee or Babe fan.
