surely, after this nice review in Library Journal.
Quoth one Gus Palas:
In this thorough account, Beer has created a definitive work on Charleston’s life and accomplishments. The result is a fascinating story and an important piece of sports history.
I ask you, dear reader, what self-respecting librarian could fail to order this book after reading such words? I would shudder to meet such a person.
Anyway, my thanks to Mr. Palas!
