"Heinz had it all--a deep understanding of human nature, a wonderful sense of humor, and a writing style so clear and clean that he makes the difficult seem easy, just the way a great athlete does." -- David Maraniss "Bill Heinz is not just one of the great sportswriters this country has produced, he is one of the great American writers." -- Mike Lupica "Heinz could make sentences sing, but his special gift was somehow to sound the chord of music that was the man. The subjects of his profiles lived and breathed and laughed and wept with unforgettable vitality." -- Roger Kahn "Heinz is that rare writer who not only becomes more important over time but more essential. His work deserves to be read and treasured by a new generation of readers." -- Glenn Stout
