I cannot remember where this book came from. I was cleaning off my bookshelf when I found it and decided to give it a look over before I sold it. It just refused to be 'looked over'. It demanded to be read so I did. It's a really readable memoir. Jordan, a freelance writer and once minor baseball player, candidly and interestingly writes about his life.

A wonderful follow up to "A False Spring". We catch up with author Pat Jordan decades later as a 50 year old making a comeback of sorts in professional baseball. Keeps you aware of life's possibilities.

The two books make great back-to-back reading!

A 3 1/2 star book, but I'll go the extra half star for its honesty.

I really wanted to like this book, but didn't. The author is admittedly self-absorbed. Just not a good story.
