Format: Hardcover
The book is a very basic story of Kirby Puckett that leads much to be desired by the more mature fan. The book while a good read, seems to be written more for kids. As the other reviewer mentioned, a good read but for a better biography we will have to wait for Puckett to come out with his own later in life.
The story of the man before his image was permanently tarnished. Brings you back to his simpler days when people smiled when you mentioned his name.

THIS IS A GOOD BUT BRIEF STORY OF A VERY GOOD CAREER FOR FORMER MINNESOTA TWIN KIRBY PUCKETT. THE BOOK IS FILLED WITH MANY PHOTOS AND THE PAGES ARE QUITE EASY TO READ. THE ONE COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THAT THE BOOK IS SPARSE AND NEEDS MORE CONTENT TO MAKE IT A VERY GOOD BOOK. KIRBY WAS A VERY GOOD PLAYER AND A FAVORITE WITH THE FANS AND TEAMATES. HE HELPED THE TWINS WIN TWO WORLD SERIES WITH HIS GREAT OVERALL PLAY. HE CAREER CAME TO A HALT BECAUSE OF GLACOMA WHICH WAS A HEREDITARY PROBLEM THAT PLAGUED HIS FATHER. WITH HIS CAREER OVER KIRBY WORKED FOR THE TWINS IN THEIR FRONT OFFICE. I ALWAYS ENJOYED WATCHING KIRBY PLAY. AFTER READING THIS BOOK I ALSO APPRECIATE WHAT A GOOD PERSON HE WAS. I DO RECOMMEND THIS FOR ALL BASEBALL AND ESPECIALLY TWINS FANS.

If baseball star Kirby Puckett were a biblical figure, he would be a cross between David, of David and Goliath and Samson, of Samson and Delilah. Unfortunaely Puck: Baseball's Last Warior doesn't approach the telling of the whole story. It is too much of an abreviation of his life and efforts. It may be that the public will have to wait for Kirby Puckett to publish his own more autobiogrphical life story for us to know what makes the man so generous, likable and thus so tragic to have had to leave baseball playing in his prime. Until such a book is published Puck will have to do for those interested in an abreviated look into the life of Kirby Puckett.
