“The incomparable and mysterious Sandy Koufax is revealed…. This is an absorbing book, beautifully written.” —Wall Street Journal

“Leavy has hit it out of the park…A lot more than a biography. It’s a consideration of how we create our heroes, and how this hero’s self perception distinguishes him from nearly every other great athlete in living memory… a remarkably rich portrait.” — Time

The instant New York Times bestseller about the baseball legend and famously reclusive Dodgers’ pitcher Sandy Koufax, from award-winning former Washington Post sportswriter Jane Leavy. Sandy Koufax reveals, for the first time, what drove the three-time Cy Young award winner to the pinnacle of baseball and then—just as quickly—into self-imposed exile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great book about the man and the game A well written book that alternates between the last perfect game Koufax pitched and his life. The game is also known as one of the best pitched games by two pitchers. After you have read the book go on You Tube to listen to Vin Scully's call of the last 3 outs of the game. You will be in baseball heaven! They don't call 'em like that anymore!
