CINDERELLA MAN James J. Braddock, Max Baer and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeremy Schaap

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Written with an ear for the language of the ring and read with crackling energy, Jeremy Schaap’s biography tells the story of James J. Braddock, the salt-of-the-earth father and athlete who became, to everyone’s surprise, the World Heavyweight Champion of 1935. Schaap’s detailed and colorful reporting includes many incisive and entertaining bits of dialogue in the speech of 1930s’ America. Parading through the proceedings are such characters as the clowning heavyweight celebrity Max Baer, misunderstood Max Schmeling, slugging Joe Louis, and even Jack Dempsey. Cinderella Man is a full-color newsreel for the ears with Schaap’s award-winning vocal style and journalism going all 15 rounds. D.J.B.
