    Excellent and thorough look at Campy's career.

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. Easy to read and lots of tidbits about the Dodgers.

    Gets bogged down at times in detail, but a good read, especially for those of us who had the opportunity to see this graceful catcher in action.

    One of the best baseball biographies of 2011!

    Thorough and even-handed look at the Dodger great. Easy to read.

    Even-handed look at the Dodger great

    A very thorough biography of Roy Campanella, with plenty on his Negro League days and a surprising look at the darker side of his personal life. Recommended.

    Enjoyable and informative

    This is a well written, well researched book that is sure to please baseball fans, history buffs, or those who are simply curious and want to learn more about Campy and his times. It's extremely readable, in the vein of Laura Hillenbrand's book on Seabiscuit. Definitely recommended.
