Fun book to read if you are a Braves fan. Hope covers the first 25 years in Atlanta when the Braves had the worst record in the major leagues. Focus is on the administration of the club and its drive to get fans. Little on the players but covers the main ones especially Hank Aaron.
Funny but Goodreads has the bio for the comedian as the author.

There's very little Atlanta Braves in former front office staffer Bob Hope's tale of his days with the team. Promotions galore, yes. Some fascinating insight into Ted Turner, yes. Baseball, not so much.

Not a book for those interested in games and stats. It is a book for those interested in the three-ring promotion-heavy circus that was the Braves, Hawks and Ted Turner of the 1970s and early 1980s.

A fun book. Not much on the players, but great insight into his relationship with Ted Turner and how he helped sell seats for some awful teams. I'd suggest this book to all Braves fans.
