As a fan of 'Rickey'in the 80s and 90s, this was a must read from years back. I found it was tough to read without a tongue in cheek feeling as I always wondered which parts came from Rickey and what his ghost writer pieced together. One can't deny that Rickey was the man on the field and that he didn't mind telling anyone who would listen that this was the case. His confidence does come across but in an entertaining way. Cool book, just don't take it too serious.

If you do not read this book you will die!!! I have multiple copies of this in hardback, paperback and on tape. I think besides his mom I might have bought the only copies.

I read this quite a long time ago. Rickey Henderson was my favorite baseball player growing up. This had lots of good facts and stories that RH fans would appreciate.

Ah Rickey. Like most autobiographies, insightful into the life of a famed athlete. Will he ever retire?
