NOTES - Author reveals how Aaron navigated the upheavals of his time-fighting against racism while at the same time benefiting from racial progress-and how he achieved his goal of continuing Jackie Robinsons mission to obtain full equality for African-Americans, both in baseball and society, while he lived uncomfortably in the public spotlight. 4 I was playing in Sarasota: Hank Aaron, with Dick Schaap: Home Run: My Life in Pictures (New York: Total Sports, 1999), p. 47.

Hammering Hank: How the Media Made Henry Aaron. Barry Bonds insisted the major league home-run record has not been "tainted" despite the controversy surrounding his breaking of Hank Aaron's 755 mark. Baseball: Bonds unrepentant after hitting his way into the history books. Synopsis: Baseball fans still regard Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth as the greatest home run hitters in baseball history, even as Barry Bonds is poised to break Aaron's career home run record.

More than a "sports bio" of a baseball icon, Hammering Hankis a fascinating account of how the media shaped Henry Aaron, baseball's most prolific home-run hitter. It is, first and foremost, the story of a baseball life. But it also is a look at a life affected more than most by events outside of baseball. Long before Aaron became part of the national landscape, he was a reflection of it. And try as he might to shut out the world around him, the forces of that world--with all their complexities and indignities and randomness--were always very much a part of him.

A LIKED THIS BOOK BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS A BIT SKIMPY ON THE CONTENT. I JUST THOUGHT THAT THE AUTHOR COULD HAVE ADDED MUCH MORE TO THIS BOOK ABOUT HANK'S CAREER. THE PART ABOUT HANK'S 715 TH HOMERUN WAS WELL DONE BUT HE SEEMED TO RACE THROUGH HIS CAREER AND WAS A BIT SKIMPY ON THE DETAILS. BUT OVERALL I DID LIKE IT. NOT MUCH IS MENTIONED ABOUT HANK'S FAMILY AFTER HE WAS MARRIED. BUT HIS CHILDHOOD IS WELL COVERED. JUST MY OPINION BUT TO ME HE IS STILL NUMBER 1 ON THE ALL TIME LIST. BONDS USED STEROIDS AND HIS RECORD IS TARNISED ALONG WITH HIS CAREER. FANS OF HANK WILL LIKE THIS BOOK BUT AARON'S BOOK I HAD A HAMMER IS BETTER.

I challenge even the most dedicated fan of 1960s and 70s baseball and Hank Aaron to read this book and not come away with an entirely new appreciation for the times that Hank had to endure while he was shattering baseball's most revered record. Mssrs. Kennedy and Stewart have crafted a thoroughly researched and wonderfully written book that baseball fans, especially Hank Aaron fans, will enjoy and refer back to.

A master work.

After reviewing the title and inside jacket, this book seemed like it would provide a critical look at an American hero and a personal favorite of mine. However, the book is a mere rehash of topics that have already been covered in other publications-- most notably, Hank Aaron's own autobiography, I Had A Hammer. This book offers no new insights into either the man or his career. Ironically, the authors state one of the reasons for doing this book is because Hank's previous books lacked sufficient insight into the man. I would stick with his 1991 autobiography and skip this. One last thing state that Hank's portrait somehow lacks substance and he is a caricature. These words are no only unfair and also I found no substantiation in the book for this conclusion. Interestingly enough, for a man supposedly lacking substance he was somehow selected as the Black Enterprise Magazine's Auto Dealer of the Year in 2004.
