Default What's the BEST Book Written About Babe Ruth?

Looking to read a Ruth biography and would like some opinions on the best one. No sugar coated, unicorns and rainbows book. A real, honest biography, warts and all. Let's hear any and all opinions and why.
Thanks,
Tony

I haven't read them all but The Big Bam, by Leigh Montville is very good, imo.

I see that Jane Leavy (who has written great books about Mantle & Koufax) has a new Ruth book out

I thought Robert Creamer's was good, even though it's old now.

Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Hard to go wrong with anything Robert Creamer wrote. It's more recent and I haven't gotten to it yet, but Montvilles' is reportedly well done also.
