From acclaimed journalist Ben Bradlee Jr. comes the epic
biography of Boston Red Sox legend Ted Williams that baseball fans have
been waiting for.

Williams was the best hitter in
baseball history. His batting average of .406 in 1941 has not been
topped since, and no player who has hit more than 500 home runs has a
higher career batting average. Those totals would have been even higher
if Williams had not left baseball for nearly five years in the prime of
his career to serve as a Marine pilot in WWII and Korea. He hit home
runs farther than any player before him -- and traveled a long way
himself, as Ben Bradlee, Jr.'s grand biography reveals. Born in 1918 in
San Diego, Ted would spend most of his life disguising his Mexican
heritage. During his 22 years with the Boston Red Sox, Williams
electrified crowds across America -- and shocked them, too: His
notorious clashes with the press and fans threatened his reputation. Yet
while he was a God in the batter's box, he was profoundly human once he
stepped away from the plate. His ferocity came to define his troubled
domestic life. While baseball might have been straightforward for Ted
Williams, life was not.
The Kid is biography of the
highest literary order, a thrilling and honest account of a legend in
all his glory and human complexity. In his final at-bat, Williams hit a
home run. Bradlee's marvelous book clears the fences, too.
