    I never really thought about the backstory of how Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball This really enlightened me to the risks involved Only downfall of this book is the writing editing It seemed Dry stream of consciousness, and sometimes parts didn t make sense, only to be fully explained a few pages down Otherwise, it was fascinating and engaging.
