    Nothing New Here

    While Montville has always been an entertaining writer, this biography not only adds nothing new to the Ruth story, but he repeats some widely discredited falsehoods, most prominently Ruth's African-American hertitage and Dan Shaughnessy's hoary old curse. One would expect more from a writer of Montville's accomplishments. For all its faults, Robert Creamer's Ruth bio is still the standard.

    Babe Ruth lives

    When I saw this book I though. Ohh, another book about Babe Ruth. I've read Creamer biography, and I passed this book by. The next day I saw it again, and as I had some time to waste, I opened it up, and read a couple sentence, then a couple paragraphs. I was hooked, and bought it. No all the questions aren't answered. They never will be as all the people are now long gone. But what a story. What a life Babe Ruth had. What a Parade he led. If you read one book this year, read this book.

    Interesting but hollow

    Montville's book on Ted Williams was superb because the reader actually got to know Williams the man. His study of Ruth is fine when discussing the phenomenon of Ruth and his times, but we learn little about Ruth the man who remains a loud apparition throughout the book. Fascinating discussion of people, especially reporters, around Ruth, but the man himself remains a mystery.
