6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mark Cannon on April 11, 2003
Format: Paperback
A true delight! Arranged alphabetically by person. This collection of baseball quotations is utterly comprehensive; it's doubtful there's anything that you'll find to be missing here. If you want to see all the "Berraisms," they're here. Stengelese? Likewise. I put the book to the test by looking up all kinds of quotes. For example: I remember when Reggie was bragging about his 160 IQ and Mickey Rivers said, "Out of what, a thousand?" And, sure enough, that quote is in here. I did stump the book a couple of times, but I had to try awfully hard. If there is any criticism of the book, it would be that it's TOO comprehensive, to the point that some of the quotes arguably aren't worth having been included; but, when it comes to this kind of thing, better too much than not enough.

Besides the expected baseball personalities, you'll find interesting quotes also from surprising sources like Philip Roth, Senator Eugene McCarthy -- and Dagwood.
