Street Kingdom is a memorable portrait, one that crumbles stereotypes and reveals not just facts. . . It brings understanding.  With passion and integrity, Century  has made Big K real and human.

San Diego Union-Tribune

Barney Ross is an excellent story of a man and his times.  And proof positive that time does not relinquish its hold over men or monuments. In a sport devoted to fashioning halos for its superstars, Ross wore a special nimbus, and this book properly fits him for that.
