    Baseball legends at their finest

    This book was a Valetine's Day purchase for my husband. He is a huge St. Louis Cardinal fan and Bob Gibson is his idol. He has several books already and I thought this one would be a great add to the collection. Little did I know that he was going to love it so much for its stories and insights to the game that he was going to recommend it to our two sons that are just beginning their baseball experiences. He would definitely recommend it not only for its historical perspective but also for the psyche to the art of the game of baseball from two of it greatest players.

    Entertaining for the True Baseball Fan

    This book gets into the mind game between the pitcher and batter. You can start reading it anywhere, and there are very interesting comments about some of the greatest players from the 70's and 80's. This is not for the casual baseball fan.

    Great Read for a Truely seasoned Fan of Baseball.

    A great read for any true baseball fan. The book does a great job in telling how the game of baseball is played from a ball players point of view. The insight into the game itself is a great part of the story that Mr. Gibson, and Mr. Jackson, point out to the reader who will read this book, however I due think the book is more a read for seasoned fan than a new self-starter trying to learn baseball for the first time. It's a great book for the above average fan to learn more about the game of baseball.

    Insightful

    I remember Gibson at the end of his career, and Jackson in his prime. It was fun to read what the two of them had to say about how they viewed their jobs, and how they felt while they were doing them. I also liked their opinions about the players in their day, and the way they are now.

    Two hall of famer players produce a hall of fame book

    The stories weaved by two of the greatest players of their generation are timeless. For the hard core fan who wants to know what goes on in the head of a player on the field, this is the book for you. No gossip, no sordid clubhouse stories. This book is mostly about what happens on the field, and it is a very entertaining read as well. You can picture Reggie in pinstripes talking about his love for attention or Gibson on that 15" mound in 1968, threatening to plunk the next hitter. Very entertaining and mesmorizing.
