Jennifer L. said:
Jimmy Breslin with his gift for easy-to-read yet hard hitting prose beautifully shows us why Branch Rickey was among the most important people, if not the most important person, in the history of baseball. His insightful, humorous and at times biting style will touch even those who aren't baseball fans. I loved this book so much I didn't want it to end. My knowledge of and respect for Branch Ricky grew as I read it.

If you see the movie "42", you quickly realize that without Branch Rickey (portrayed wonderfully by Harrison Ford), there might not have been a Jackie Robinson breaking the racial barrier in major league baseball. This book provides excellent back story on the courageous, progessive-minded owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. And, who better to write this book than legendary writer Jimmy Breslin.
