Testimonials

Douglas Century

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.

​The New York Times Book Review

Douglas Century

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

Douglas Century

Merits a place alongside The Grapes Of Wrath and Native Son . . . Street Kingdom, Century's first book, is an inventive mix of courageous investigative reporting, accomplished storytelling, knowing social commentary and wicked street-smart prose . . .

​Detroit Free Press

Douglas Century

If I were the education president every White House inhabitant claims to be, the reforms would begin with putting Douglas Century's new biography, Barney Ross on the required-reading list.
