Reviews

"It is unlikely that any reader could view Ted Williams as just a ballplayer ever again." -- New York Times Book Review

"Exceptional. Montville on Ted Williams is can't-miss, one of America's best sportswriters weighing in on one of the last century's most intriguing figures. A great read." --Chicago Tribune

"Leigh Montville reaches a threshold even the mighty Williams could never touch: perfection. The beauty of Montville's work is that it is not a baseball book, per se, so much as the life and times of an oft perplexing, always fascinating man." --Newsday

"A comprehensive look at a gargantuan life." --People
