Free (NOOKcolor/Kindle US/iBooks) The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle... [Baseball Biography]
The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood (Enhanced Edition) by Jane Leavy, is a biographical memoir of the famous baseball player, free courtesy of HarperCollins.
This is a NOOKcolor enhanced edition with audio/video/whatever that will only work on a NOOKcolor (though one day they might release a compatible app).
Free @ B&N, naturally.
The enhanced e-book of The Last Boy includes 30 minutes of video that provide unique analysis of Mantle's left and right handed swings * Mantle memorabilia not found in the book * Insight into the structure of the book * And other information sure to interest Mantle and baseball fans.
Meticulously reported and elegantly written, The Last Boy weaves together the author s own memories of Mickey Mantle with stories and reminiscences, both on and off the field, of a man who led the Yankees to seven world championships, was voted the American League s MVP three times, won the Triple Crown in 1956 and dueled teammate Roger Maris in the thrilling 1961 chase for the single season home-run record — all the while battling crippling injuries and the lifelong drinking problem that eventually led to his death.
