My Recommendation

Looking at the names of the five men which serve as the subject of this book, and one, Jackie Robinson, obviously stands out. But do not let Robinson's fame overshadow how incredible the story of each man is, or how unbelievable it was for five men of this ilk and race to be grouped together in the 1930's. All five men battled prejudice and hardship with extraordinary resiliency and determination. All five men contributed greatly to our society, and all five should be remembered fondly for their contributions. I enjoyed discovering the journeys of each man, and how they were able to achieve greatness even when the world did not want them to succeed.
