    When I started reading this book, i was a little skeptical about whether or not i should continue. The beginning wasn't all about baseball, like I thought the whole book would have been. Then i realized that it was in fact a biography, and Joe DiMaggio wasn't a baseball player when he was five years old. This book talks about pretty much everything that Joe had been through in his life his first job, the first baseball team he was ever on, his first girlfriend. It even tells us about his best friends when he was a kid. Other then telling us about Joe DiMaggio and his life, I think Cramer was trying to get his own point across: Never give up. I think that one of the reasons Cramer mentioned such bad, and dark things that happened in DiMaggio¿s life is because he wants to show what Joe had to overcome. Joe never gave up, and he became one of the greatest baseball players to ever play the game. I like how Cramer went into detail about almost everything, such as describing Joe's childhood friends. At the same time, that was something i also dislike a little bit, because that took away from the baseball part of the book. The more Cramer went into detail about the non-baseball part of Joe's life, the more that took away from the baseball part. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a baseball fan, even if that person knows nothing about Joe DiMaggio. Even if you are not a baseball fan, this book would still be good, but it would still be hard to understand what Cramer is talking about sometimes.

    Though I am a huge Mets fan, I found this book to be a very interesting read into Joe DiMaggio the man, as well as Joe DiMaggio the Yankee. I especially enjoyed reading how the relationship between the Yankee organization and DiMaggio evolved throughout the years.
