The Gilded Age of Sport: 1945–1960

'“Thoughtful, judicious, balanced, the best of its kind since Paul Gallico’s Farewell to Sport . . . Mr. Wind is a gifted and versatile craftsman.” —John R. Tunis, The New York Times Book Review   “[A] rich harvest of basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, hockey—even the Harvard Band and Mayor Curley. Wind gets into the hearts of his subject whether he writes of Maurice Richard, one of hockey’s greats, or Sam Snead and Ben Hogan on the fairway or Helen Wills on the courts. One catches the feel of the player and the spectator.” —Kirkus Reviews  Praise for Herbert Warren Wind “The most devoted American on the course, and the most elegant. His writing on [golf], and on tennis and other sports, too . . . was always spare, measured, and sure, like the man.” —David Remnick, The New Yorker  '
