Many libraries may already have Feller's autobiography, Now Pitching, Bob Feller (1990), but this book would still be a worthy addition. "Rapid Robert" has always had plenty of sharp-witted opinions. This volume is divided into short, easily digestible sections, and Feller writes tellingly of the stars of his generation. He really shines when talking about his father and how the old man, eager to showcase his son's baseball talent, built a "field of dreams" on their Iowa farm when Feller was still a teen. Recommended.
