Barry Bonds: Baseball Superman is the biography of the game's first four-time Most Valuable Player. In 2001, Bonds broke the greatest record in sports, the all-time single-season home run record held over the years by Babe Ruth, Roger Maris and Mark McGwire, and arguably had the greatest season in baseball history. There is no doubt that for most fans, Barry Bonds is a man of mystery. Author Steven Travers documents the superstar's 2001 campaign as Bonds defied the very bounds of conventional logic and perfected the art of long-ball hitting. Travers also describes Bonds's childhood in Riverside, California, the hometown of his father, Bobby; his successful high school career in the Bay Area, and his All-American career at Arizona State.

Travers' new book finally explains the phenomenon In an intriguing new book by author Steven Travers entitled 'Barry Bonds: Baseball¿s Superman' (Sports Publishing, Inc.), the Bonds tale is spelled out in the most thorough, interesting, revealing, concise manner ever reached. Travers deserves much credit for exploring all of the Bonds past in an objective light. He has seen the complete man, warts and all, and concludes that his playing skills have been undiminished by a surly sense and a joyless attack on the game. Somehow, Travers got Bonds to cooperate with this work and it reads fairly, honestly and dramatically. I wish every ball player I ever interviewed greeted me with a smile.
