Bought this signed book for my husband's birthday. He is a walking encyclopedia on baseball history, so he didn't seem overly excited about this book. He only has 40 pages left to read and he is so disappointed...that it is ending! He really enjoyed this book on Babe Ruth and there was plenty of new information in the book. He told me the writer did an excellent job! Yay, I hit it out of the ballfield!

The Big Fella, by Jane Leavy is a book that should be passed up. It rambles on for pages with little mention of Babe Ruth, or baseball, instead focusing on newspapers, yellow journalism and the rise of various reporters who furthered the rise of newspapers sales devoted to sports in general. Eighteen pages alone were devoted to an egg laying contest, and market advertising. The 600ish pages could easily be narrowed down to less then three hundred when you eliminate the needless, and often boring side trips on those other topics rather than baseball or Ruth. Poorly written with numerous grammatical errors, and lacking chronological cohesiveness. A waste of time and in my opinion. Do not waste your money or time on this. Yikes!
