Editorial Reviews

Review

“The greatest Jewish baseball player since Sandy Koufax fuses sports autobiography with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.” — Kirkus Reviews

“A very unusual and satisfying chronicle of one man’s approach to his craft and to life.” — Booklist

“Green swears that his Eastern outlook and honed calm…allowed him, at his best, to feel “that the pitcher was now my partner in hitting rather than my opponent”; and, frankly it is difficult to argue with the man who, at his best, set the record for total bases hit in a game…Those who do not share Green’s earnestness…may nonetheless find it fruitful to suspend their unbelief and read Green’s slim book…for its technical discussions of hitting and its satisfying three-act tale of early success, midcareer setback and ultimate triumph.” —New York Times Book Review

“When it comes to writing about baseball, he’s an all-star…..A thoughtful and introspective look at the game.” — New York Post

“Green’s book is a quick read…but what could be a collection of generalities is instead a detailed look inside the mind of a former All-Star.” — The New York Times
