Anything for a T-Shirt
Fred Lebow and the New York City Marathon, the World’s Greatest Footrace

Paper $19.95    |    0-8156-0806-3    |    2004

"Fred Lebow was a dreamer, the kind of dreamer who pursued his dream and made it a reality. And the world is still reaping the rewards." So begins this uplifting chronicle of a humbly born Holocaust survivor who parlayed natural marketing smarts—and a vision—into a major position in recent American sports. He started the New York City Marathon, an event that transformed footracing from an elite, austere sport into a wildly applauded, attainable pursuit.
