Babe Ruth remains the most popular player in the history of baseball. The slugger for the New York Yankees established a home run record in the 1927 season, just a year before joining the league of authors. Babe Ruth's Own Book is a who's who of old-time greats-Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, and many others. It describes the Babe's rise from poverty to stardom, catching his image and voice as freshly and permanently as pen and ink can. In a no-nonsense style, the Babe describes the ins and outs of the game, touching all bases and loading up the reader with priceless information and advice. The surprise is that so little about the sport has changed except the size of the players' salaries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Babe lives. He died in 1948, almost a half century ago. Roger Maris broke his one-season home run record in 1961 and thirteen years later Hank Aaron passed him in most home runs, lifetime-events that should have lost the Babe in the fog of time. Instead, he is as large as ever... [This is] a remarkably good book."-Jerome Holtzman -- Jerome Holtzman
