A really excellent overview of Jackie Robinson's life both in and after baseball. His daughter is the author, but she uses Jackie's own words to illustrate his struggles and his perseverance. The book is divided into sections related to Jackies' nine values to live by and each section has stories, photos, and essays. I found it to be a great way to learn more about Jackie and also a nice review of the Civil Rights struggle in this country. Go #42! ( )

I was six when my dad retired from Major League Baseball and twelve when he was elected into baseball's Hall of Fame. I was sixteen the first time my boyfriend hit me; eighteen when my brother Jackie was arrested for drug possession; and twenty when I took control of my life.
