Like its predecessor, The Yogi Book, Fork is essentially a collection of Yogi's well-traveled observations from out of left field, but it's much more than just déjà vu all over again. Instead of explaining, as he has before, what prompted a particular Yogi-ism or what he was really trying to say, Yogi does his best to go deep. The charm is that Yogi's so guileless, he makes it work--there's sagacity in his simplicity. Each Yogi-ism gets its own short chapter in which Yogi riffs off the phrase to dispense a bit of homespun wisdom and inspiration. "It gets late early out there"--we get old before we're ready, but here's how to cope with it. "If you can't imitate him, don't copy him"--we all need to be true to ourselves. With Yogi's latest career as a successful author, not only ain't it over for him, there's happily no end in sight. --Jeff Silverman --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Its ok. Obviously a ghostwriter did most of the work. My son lost interest despite being an avid sports reader.Published 8 months ago by Some Guy
Bought this for my Daddy who loves Yogi Berra's sense of humor. My Dad sat in his chair for a long time and laugh and laugh as he read the jokes.Published 9 months ago by Carolyn
This is a great book. I had purchased it once before for my husband but his boss threw it in the trash. I was compelled to purchase another one. Fast shipping. Thanks.Published 14 months ago by cynthia j helsel
