    Buck O'Neil was truly an amazing man. He was an American treasure. Despite having to face to indignities of Jim Crowe and the farce that was seperate but equal, Mr. O'Neil lived his life with an abundance of optimism. He always treated others with kindness and respect. This man was a role model. If my children grow up and have a quarter of the character/integrity of the late Mr. O'Neil, I will be elated.

    Excellent insight to Buck

    Great read on traveling for a year with Buck, Mr. Negro Leagues and his positive outlook on life.

    A true testament to a gentle giant

    What shines through from this book is the grace, humility and class of Buck O'Neill. Posnanski, having failed in attempts to write about the Negro Baseball Leagues, succeeds better than he ever could have imagined by describing them through Buck O'Neill's stories. A lovely book and a very easy read. I found myself smiling the whole way through.

    On the road with Buck

    A splendid collection of stories not just nostalgia, but history of the most enjoyable and enduring sort. Buck O'Neil continues to be one of our most valuable citizens, and Joe Posnanski is a talented writer, and an exacting listener.
