GREAT TIME COMING The Life of Jackie Robinson from Baseball to Birmingham

by | Read by Richard M. Davidson

Biography & Memoir • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

The pioneering Jackie Robinson’s on-the-field accomplishments have inspired many books, stories, and movies over the years. Here David Falkner gives a well-rounded overview, culling a lot of research to craft a comprehensive biography of the man, not just the player. Richard M. Davidson delivers a steady narration of a life worth hearing about. Davidson keeps it straight, using a consistent tone and avoiding any vocal impressions that could come across as disingenuous. And that’s just as well, because most of the subject matter is serious, including much attention to Robinson’s political leanings in his life after baseball. Davidson sounds like an engaging professor talking to eager students. Consider this more of a history lesson than a book about baseball.
