4.0 out of 5 stars Best Read If You Are A Fan, 27 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: I Had a Hammer (Mass Market Paperback)
I Had a Hammer is a wonderful book if you are a fan of Hank Aaron or of baseball in general. Aaron gives insights into what it was like to come out of Alabama during the Jim Crow era from his days as a boy, to playing in the Negro Leagues, signing with the Braves, all the way up until his retirement from baseball.
That's the good part. As a life-long, Aaron fan I loved it. Unfortunately, the book lacks much of the passion and drive that led Aaron to breaking Ruth's unbreakable career home run record.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Had A Hammer A Hit, 25 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: I Had a Hammer (Mass Market Paperback)
The book is a must read. It shows Aaron fight against prejustice to evenutually break a record that he would be scorned and have his life threatend before he could break it. Also his triumph of breaking Babe Ruth's all time career home run record also winning in a white man's world.
