Excellent , What a remarkable ball player. struck down wih ALS . Never gave up and always looking for hope.
Excellent book. Great baseball story with a very human touch. I was ALMOST inclined to even like the Yankees for a bit. Having been a life-long Red Sox fan, this wasn't easy to accomplish. Highly recommend this book.
This read should be a mandatory pre-req for anyone who enters professional sports of any kind. It embodies the essence of everything a professional sportsman SHOULD be. My goodness . . .what has this world come to. When you compare then to now . . .it is frightening.
For any baseball fan, for any sports fan, for any fan of greatness, for any fan of life. This guy was on top of the world and came down with a deadly disease. Yet, he truly believed that he was lucky. The inter-mingling of Ruth and Gehrig makes this even better
This was an excellent book. Recently read another on about Lou Gehrig which was not nearly as complete.
A great baseball story. Enjoyable and touching. Gehrig was a model for what many players today need - consistent and humble, not self-centered and greedy.
I have always been a baseball fan, but knew little of the life of Lou Gehrig. The book not only gave great information on his carreer, but also showed who he was as a man. After listening to the book, his famous words mean so much more.
This is a wonderful book about a noble man. The baseball portions are concise and the story of his life and family are very moving. well worth listening to.
Very informative and entertaining........a must read for the baseball fan. This book certainly pays homage to a very special baseball personality This book was a very entertaining and informative read.....a must if you are interested in the game of baseball and great baseball personalities. It more than adequately compares the game and players of yesteryear with those of today.
A great listen for any baseball fan, the story of Lou Gehrig makes you wonder how todays players could be so selfish. A great balance of the story of Gehrig's life in and out of baseball.
