This book was broken up by different phases of his career, mainly his stops on different teams. I was able to get a great picture of who he was and how seriously he treated his job. There is no wonder why he was successful wherever he went.
My only complaint was that certain parts were drawn out as I feel they could have been condensed into shorter chapters.
I highly recommend this book to any baseball fans who enjoy a good biographical portrait. Sweet Lou is definitely one that deserves our attention and acknowledgment.
