At long last, the epic biography Ted Williams deserves—and that his fans have been waiting for.

Williams was the best hitter in baseball history. His batting average of .406 in 1941 has not been topped since, and no player who has hit more than 500 home runs has a higher career batting average. Those totals would have been even higher if Williams had

Ted Williams was one of the greatest talents to ever take the baseball field and the new biography The Kid does his legacy justice. The book is very well researched and filled with insight into the life and career of this true baseball legend. Ben Bradlee Jr. knows how to write a compelling story!

Well researched, very thorough, I learned a lot about Ted Williams. I thought I,knew a lot about his life but I learned a lot. He was a most complex man. Could be the worst yet the best man. A very good book which I recommend.

Book is an in depth look at an icon of baseball and a disfunctional disfunctional reulting from a parent who was dismissive and "never there". Ted, as depicted in the lengthy study, reflects the extreme as a driven individual to be perfect in his own view and expecting the world to conform to his self image of himself. The book depicts the sad relationship with his multi women including three failed marriages and the disaster at the end of his life with the ridiculous freezing of his head and torso. However all of his achievements in the baseball world were remarkable and depicted in the details of his career as were his varied talents serving in two wars. As a fan of Williams and living in the era of the 40's and 50's baseball idols it was a well studied story and kept my attention in spite of the length of the volume. .
