One of the most entertaining sports memoirs ever. Bill Veeck, who enraged other baseball owners in the 50s by not wearing a tie and shooting off fireworks, shares highlights from his colorful career. Funny if a bit disorganized, the prose gives you the feeling of sitting across from Veeck over a beer.
