    A Fantastic Family Story

    This book gives an example of an inspiring relationship between a father and a son. You often hear of the bad family relationships of public figures, however, this book gave you the respctful and loving retionship that a baseball star has with his family, specifically his father. It almost makes you breathe a sigh of relief.

    Limited Appeal

    Me and My Dad is Paul O¿Neill¿s tribute to his late father Chuck O¿Neill. The book takes you through Paul¿s life from playing homerun derby in his backyard as a child, to playing in the World Series as a New York Yankee. He places emphasis on his fathers influence and wisdom he shared with him through the many troubles he had in life. Throughout the book Paul tells us about his experiences and how his father could always put a positive spin on everything by relating life to baseball, or baseball to life. The book helps to give the reader a deeper and simpler look at professional athletes. While it is a must read for any Yankee or Paul O¿Neill fan, I cannot recommend it to anyone else. Even for a baseball fan like myself it has limited appeal. It is short and not very well written; some parts seem to drag on and on about nothing. Yankee fans will love it just to get a deeper understanding of one of their better players, but others will laugh at Paul¿s girlyness and grow to dislike him by the end. Because of these reasons, I can only recommend this book to Yankee fans, and possibly women who like to see the softer and more sensitive side of men.

    A Fine Athlete, An Even Finer Man

    How nice to read a book about a professional athlete who has values and love of family. Greed and self-admiration are the mantra of so many of today's sports heroes, yet these flawed qualities are not what Paul O'neill is all about. Anyone who reads this book will learn about what really matters in life.

    GREAT!

    One of the best baseball books ever. It's one of those books that when you finish it you're sad that there isn't more. Even if you are not a yankees fan you will still love this book.

    WOW

    I just finished this book, and if Paul O'neill was not already my favorite player he is now...the way he writes of his father and his Yankee days brought tears to my eyes. Today so much of sports talk is about money and scandal. This book gives us a glimpse into the world of baseball we don't get to see. It wonderfully portrays that the players are regular people with feelings and problems like all of us. A must read for any fan of the great American past time

    A Field of His Own

    I knew Paul O'Neill as a teenager in Columbus and his book tells the story of our neighborhood in the late 70's. His love for his father and family comes through in every word of the book. He was totally honest about his 'fiery' temper and how it was driven from within. Paul was the athlete on the North Side of Columbus and all of Borrkhaven High School is proud of his achievements! It is to his credit that we have a baseball book that explains the bond between Father and Son. Through him I am able to see how and why my love for the game is true and real.
