    MOBI arnepistol.co ✓ The Last Hero eBook ✓ The Last eBook ¾ last book, hero mobile, The Last mobile, The Last Hero KindleThis biography is at its core a story about the heart of Hank Aaron At times Aaron was a prickly man prone to sulking while he played in the shadow of his contemporary Willie Mays and in a small media market While Aaron did not have the dazzling play making ability of Mays Aaron was the better hitter Interestingly Aaron and Mays grew up in Mobile Alabama and played against one another in high schoolAaron signed a contract with the Negr

    MOBI arnepistol.co ✓ The Last Hero eBook ✓ The Last eBook ¾ last book, hero mobile, The Last mobile, The Last Hero KindleHank Aaron is an American hero and he deserves respect He also deserves a decent biography by a man who doesn't smother his subject with an avalanche of faint praise backhanded compliments and and endless stream of defensive apologies from the author Howard Bryant tries so hard to make Henry Aaron into a transcendent figure and yet the harder he tries the Hank just looks like a nice not too bright guy who hit a lot of home runs Mind you I'

    MOBI arnepistol.co ✓ The Last Hero eBook ✓ The Last eBook ¾ last book, hero mobile, The Last mobile, The Last Hero KindleI read this for a look at the systemic racism that is still prevalent in today's society I chose this over I Had A Hammer thinking it would be a well rounded view Got some good stuff on baseball integration and some of the early black star players I agree with others that Henry is just not that forthcoming and the author struggled to describe his view of the game Bryant keeps referencing the racist hate mail of the early 70s that was covered so extensively in I Had A Hammer; I thought he should have gone in depth with that shown letter examples so that we could understand that mindset Having grown up south of Milwaukee I did learn much about that city's history both good and bad The Last Hero could have had about 100 pages edited out I still prefer Bob Gibson's memoir Stranger to the Game for its unflinching look at how baseball used to be played
