It's a good look at baseball in 1969 -- and while none of the revelations are particularly surprising (baseball players drink! and chase women!), Bouton is an interesting guide. I like it when he veers off a little and starts thinking about race and Vietnam and other issues, but there are some great baseball stories, too.
