Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Interesting tidbits abound in this fascinating biography of a true hero. Bak tells how Gehrig, while suffering from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), gave a farewell speech that became the baseball equivalent of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Gehrig's life story continues to strike a chord, and libraries would do well to order this lovely book.
