    1. I've read many book on the era and Ruth. Jenkinson does a very good job at taking the singular act of hitting a home run and painting a fascinating look at the man behind the myth. The legend endures, it is deserved.


    2. Good read, goes into pretty decent detail about how tough it was to be a ballplayer back in those days, especially with the distance of the ballparks they played in. Not to mention how many games they played and endured especially with injuries. They didn't miss many games the way they do now.


    3. Who's the greatest baseball player of all time? I used to think it was Babe Ruth. Then I read this entertaining, expertly researched and reasoned book. Now I KNOW that it was Babe Ruth.


    4. What research! Read three times. I'll never pass by the ballpark in Dunsmuir, on I-5, without thinking of the Babe.


    5. A good book that does well integrating its dual aims of communicating the essence of Ruth as a player and celebrity and arguing for the reinsertion of Ruth at the top of the baseball heap. The writing is pedestrian through the first few chapters, which are just a summary of Ruth's career, but the book and the writing get much better when the book shifts to the arguments for Babe's superiority. The analysis is sound and the conclusions well supported. While reading this book more evidence of Bond [...]


    6. The title for this book for very accrurate as to the content. The book talks about Ruth's greatness but then makes the case that he could hit 104 homers. This also came out during the tale end of the steriod era which add to the author's point. Jenkinson uses the arguement of diluting pitching, smaller ballparks, better travel conditions, and of course access to modern medicine (aka, roids) to make his case that Ruth would hit over 100 with ease. He also adds ball park diagrams of were Ruth's ho [...]


    7. A really good informative book on the life and achievement's of George Herman Ruth. The book gives you a year by year account of his career with special focus on 1924 when Babe was at his peak. It charts his unofficial games in the off season, where he would play against all comers. Including the leading black players of the day who were barred from the Major League. Jenkinson compares the game when Ruth was playing with today, giving a comparison between Ruth and some of the current big hitters [...]
