HarperCollins, May 10, 1991 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 300 pages
A captivating biography of the legendary ball player Lou Gehrig, known for both his prowess on the field and his courage in life.

Lou Gehrig will go down in history as one of the best ballplayers of all time. With a career average of .340 and 493 home runs, he played in a record-setting 2,130 consecutive games and was elected to the Hall of Fame. He was robbed of his superb physical skills as a relatively young man by ALS, the degenerative disease now known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease", and died in 1941. Ray Robinson re-creates the life of this legendary ballplayer and also provides an insightful look at baseball through the Depression years, including all the great players of that era -- Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Miller Huggins, and more.

A good, simple read about Gehrig. I also like the fact that the author was old enough to have been a fan of Gehrig. Read full review
