The author dives into the life of Jim Brown, arguably football's greatest running back of all time. Through solid reporting, Zirin captures the essence of the fiercely independent Brown. The biography covers his youth, playing career, acting roles, relationships, work with the Amer-I-Can empowerment organization, and a litany of domestic violence charges. Zirin narrates in a relaxed tone that never wavers throughout the audiobook. While many famous people such as former teammates, comedian Richard Pryor, and others, are quoted, Zirin narrates straightforwardly throughout, a smart choice. Zirin, who writes often on race and sports, has done a nice job on the Hall of Famer. M.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
