Sandy Koufax has been called aloof and a recluse. Janet Leavy's definitive Koufax biography dispels these myths and reveals the true Koufax. Charley Steiner's reading is as masterful as the book. Whether conveying the fans' excitement when Koufax pitched or their dismay when he retired at age 30, Steiner hits a home run. He reads with the authority of a sports anchor, without losing the enthusiasm of a fan who learns that his hero really was a man of honor, who pitched despite intense pain. Steiner is especially effective in the passages that describe the adoration of Koufax's fans and their efforts to meet him or obtain his prized autograph. This biography transcends the topic of baseball. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
