5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on baseball ever written, January 21, 2001
This review is from: Veeck--As In Wreck: The Autobiography of Bill Veeck (Paperback)
Veeck - As In Wreck is the wild and wonderful autobiography of baseball club owner Bill Veeck. Mr. Veeck, who has been enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, was of a rare breed: a baseball owner who actually had a clue. Of course, that meant that during his life he was a pariah among owners. The book covers his life from childhood to the first time he sold the Chicago White Sox, in the early 1960s. It's loaded with screamingly funny anecdotes. And although the book was co-authored with Ed Linn, Veeck could have written the book by himself: he was quite literate, and the book is strewn with literary and cultural references. It's a joy to read, and re-read. I can't say enough good things about it.
