A Look Inside Stan Musial


--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Big hitter Vecsey scores with [this] tribute.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
 
“[George] Vecsey’s exhaustively researched book, Stan Musial: An American Life, winningly captures the essence of this son of the Depression; it is also filled with yearning for an earlier, perhaps better, time in sports: before steroids and showboating athletes, when the boys of summer traveled to games by train and the World Series ended in mid-October.”—Associated Press
 
 “Vecsey brings a fans’ reverence and a skilled journalist’s love of incisive research to this book, and the result is a sumptuous trip through a mid-20th century when baseball really was the National Pastime.”—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“Baseball fans get their fix of one of the game’s brightest stars when they read George Vecsey’s new book.”—USA Today
 
“Fastidiously researched . . . a rich glimpse behind the cheerful facade.”—Sports Illustrated
 
“A biography of a worthy subject by a worthy author.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“Plenty of fascinating Musialiana.”—The Wall Street Journal
