Summary:
George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. swung the heaviest bat, earned the most money, and incurred the biggest fines. Aided by his crucial partnership with Christy Walsh-- business manager, spin doctor, damage control wizard, and surrogate father-- Ruth drafted the blueprint for modern athletic stardom. Leavy breaks through the mythology that has obscured the legend and delivers the man. -- adapted from jacket
