THE BIG BAM The Life and Times of Babe Ruth

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Scott Brick

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

The Big Bam is a superb biography of Babe Ruth, the larger-than-life home-run king and baseball’s first true superstar. Exhaustively researched by acclaimed sportswriter Leigh Montville and read superbly by Scott Brick, this book is a must for every baseball fan and anyone who wants a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Babe. Brick’s wry style is a perfect fit for the book, which takes the reader from the Babe’s childhood to his death. Brick literally inhabits the Babe’s psyche, conveying a man who appeared to many to be an illiterate drunken bumpkin but who was in reality a perceptive athlete driven to perfection. Some books this long tend to drag, but like the real-life man, this Babe is never dull. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
