Henry Aaron had established his home in the Milwaukee suburb of Mequon, and didn't relish the move to the south. Author Bryant covers in great detail Aaron's chase towards the hallowed record of Babe Ruth's 714 home runs, his relationship with Willie Mays, and the controversy of Barry Bonds and his eventual breaking of Aaron's record. Aaron preferred to say nothing knowing that a comment against a tainted steroid achievement would appear as sour grapes towards having his record broken while saying anything positive would appear to legitimatize Bonds' record.
We have serious biographies of Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Ted Williams, and now thanks to author Howard Bryant we can add the name of Henry Aaron to the list. If you enjoy baseball books and its glorious history this is another outstanding volume for your library.
