This review is from: Ball Four (RosettaBooks Sports Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I originally hesitated buying the book because I'm basically a Yankee fan and I knew this was written after he left the Yankees. But then I read an LA Times review of the updated versions, saying it was the greatest baseball book ever written. I see some complaints on here about it being choppy, but it never pretended to be anything else -- we shared his year with him on a daily basis, good, bad, and terrible. He was so honest, about himself as well as others, and I felt I lived that year with him. He doesn't put himself above the other guys, doesn't spare himself anywhere, sharing his grief as well as his joy. And he has a great style, good sense of humor. Was pleasantly surprised. Mine was the Kindle edition and there was nothing wrong with it.
