    Honest and heartfelt read

    Good read....everyone who is remotely familiar with baseball knows about Jim Abbott and his "disability" but it was interesting to read about how he felt about it himself. I half expected the typical "aw shucks, it never even occurred to me that I only had one hand" type of read, but instead found it to be a little sad, a whole lot honest but mostly a book about a great athlete whose career was a disappointment only to himself. I only gave 4 stars because I found the syntax wordy at times....I expected more from Yahoo's Tim Brown, co-author and presumed editor.

    In a nutshell, a well-done autobiography of pitcher better known

    In a nutshell, a well-done autobiography of pitcher better known for overcoming a birth defect to make the major leagues than for his accomplishments on the mound – which is ironic for a man who managed a no-hitter while on the mound for the New York Yankees.  (Aside: The author does acknowledge the irony of the twilight of his career – when his ability to get batters out made a rapid decline, people finally began to talk about his performance before his missing hand.)

    NOTE: The author reads his own work on the audio version – a rarity in that format.

    RATING: 4.5 stars, rounding to 4 stars for sites (most of them) that do not permit half-stars.
