"It is a special treat to add Lou Gehrig: The Lost Memoir, to the canon of such a profound American life. What a treasure to hear from Gehrig at the height of his powers, blissfully unaware of the hardship he would face. Gehrig offers fascinating first-hand insight into his life and the world of baseball in the 1920s, and Alan D. Gaff follows with a captivating essay giving readers the full scope of the man. This book is a must read for anyone interested in a fresh perspective from a true legend in his prime."
