If you love baseball history you know about Joe Dimaggio the Yankees' superstar centerfielder. Even if you aren't old enough to have been alive when it happened you've probably heard about Joe's 56 game hitting streak in 1941 a record many experts say will stand forever. Through meticulous research and interviews Kennedy takes readers beyond the field. From the private world inhabited only by DiMaggio and his wife Dorothy to Newark, NJ barbershops, the playgrounds of Queens, and the streets of DiMaggio's hometown, San Francisco Kennedy humanizes an immortal accomplishment. I didn't want this smoothly and beautifully written true story to come to an end in part because it is about so much more than baseball.
