As you know from Virginia's post, A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez hits shelves today. The media firestorm is already intense, with features in the AP, Sports Illustrated, an appearance on the Today Show, and lots of local coverage. In A-Rod, Roberts goes beyond the sensational headlines, probing A-Rod's childhood to reveal a man torn by obligation to his family and the pull of his insatiable hedonism. It's a must-read, quite simply put. New York Magazine writes: "This is not a book of conjecture: It’s one of hard, bootstrap journalism...The sports-biography landscape is littered with halfhearted, quickie, SCANDALOUS, sloppy books with no depth, research, or legwork behind them. This is definitely not one of those." See for yourself: browse inside the book, or check out the New York Magazine story, the AP article, Selena's interview with Bob Costas, and her interview on The Today Show.
