KIRKUS REVIEW

Dramatically presented, these profiles, by prominent adult writers of famous athletes--Roy Campanella, Babe Zaharias, Bob Feller, Jackie Robinson, Johnny Unitas, Althea Gibson, Jim Thorpe, Joe Louis, Bobby Jones, Jimmy Piersall, Ben Hogan, and Roy Glenn Cunningham--display insight which is both professional and personal. Stories of great odds, failing health, spectacular comebacks, are given vigorous presentation as the authors range from one sport area to another. While fans will be immediately drawn to this anthology, readers whose primary concern is in human benefit material will find much of interest in these compact and penetrating biographies.
