A very good book about one of the great pitchers of the game. The book details Glavine's life as a youngster through his time with the Braves. Some of it deals with his mechanics of pitching but most is about his team, teammates, coaches, mangers, owners, etc. If you are a Tom Glavine fan or a Braves fan you will enjoy this book!

A fun book to read after his Induction to the Hall of Fame. It is most definately not a tell all like Ball Four. However, it was interesting to hear Glavine's stories behind his choice between hockey and baseball and his role in the 1994 Strike. Obviously, a good read for Braves fans!

A fantastic read written in a true first person voice. Tom Glavine shares his stories of growing up playing baseball, decisions on picking a sport to pursue professionally, and on being a Brave. As a huge Tom Glavine and Braves fan, I really enjoyed reading this.

I am obsessed with the Braves, so naturally I bought and read this book immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed it at the time. However, Glavine has since crossed over to other side (NY Mets), so reading this now is pointless.

Definite read for any Tom Glavine fan. Cool insight on Tom - his life growing up, getting into the pros and of course the World Series win in 1995.

It was pretty slow reading with all the stats but interesting to read behind the scenes of baseball.
