Great book! Mr. Berra was an amazing player and did a great job of putting into words the lessons he learned.
I picked this book up on a whim, while browsing the new releases in the library. Although, I didn't get to put as much effort into reading the book as I would have liked, I liked the book for the most part. If one knows anything about baseball, one will know Yogi Berra is one of the good ones new players aspire to be. As you read his book of his experiences, you realize why. He talks a lot about being a team player and respect, which is something that transcends the baseball world. If you need a ...more
Yogi has written a book about the essence of teamwork as he sees it, drawn from his years as a player and coach for the New York Yankees. Unfortunately, as a philosopher he makes a good catcher. This book contains too much fat and too little meat. Any cardiologist would ban it for the artery clogging cholesterol.
I expected it to be a book about Yogi-isms, but it wasn't. However, since I have been a fanatic baseball fan since the age of 6, I enjoyed the book about Yogi's experiences in baseball. If you are a Yankee fan, I think you will thoroughly enjoy the book.

A very enjoyable read. Almost a philosophical read, no matter how unintended the philosophy is. Many good ideas on leadership, disguised as a baseball book.
I didn't find the interminable baseball stories and name dropping interesting at all. Maybe my grandson Jon would like it.
He repeats himself endlessly, but I got something out of his lecture on how being late shows lack of team spirit and character.
I love Yogi's books. They are easy to read and carry a lot of his personality.
