<B>Joe DiMaggio: The Hero's Life</B>, written and read here by , might come as a jolt for Joltin' Joe, but it's a fascinating portrait of one of our great American sports heroes one that paints the Yankee Clipper as a brooding, silent, solitary man who wrapped himself in his own myth and used his reputation as currency, cashing in as often as possible. Cramer gives us the story behind the glory, the greed behind the grace and the despair behind the dignity, along with vibrant play-by-plays of the Slugger's great games. Perfect present for major fans of the majors.
