"Klima (Willie's Boys) weaves the team's "sense of destiny" with a Milwaukee fan's obsession and a journalist's eye in relating this "David versus Goliath" baseball saga that avoids the braggadocio of others of its ilk." -"Publishers Weekly"


"[Klima] tells a great story well, makes a dead era vivid and focuses on what really mattered about a wonderful team. The Braves may have won just once, but in so doing they humbled a dynasty, brought pride to the provinces and helped reshape baseball's geography. There are teams that won more championships but few that did half as much." -"The Wall Street Journal"
