Reviewer: Jonathan Deaner from London, United Kingdom:
"Professor Kaye's book is about the dilemmas experienced by black athletes, not an exhaustive account of every punch landed by Tiger Flowers and his contemporaries. As a study of race relations in the 1920s and black life in Atlanta, it seems to me that it succeeds admirably. The book is clearly written and the illustrations are revealing."
