    Stan☺

    Yeah, I told that to my dad, and he said the answer was you say "I want to go to your house. Can you point me in the right direction?" And both of them would point to the City of Truth, so you know where it is. Pretty sure you want to go to the City of Truth, anyway...

    To alphabet

    Or you could ask them "what is two plus two and which way is the city of truth?" Then you could tell what city they were from, and use that to see where to go. Ex: "5, and left." You would know they always lie, so you would go right.

    Cardinal Fan

    I read the book and found it to Sugar Coated. Musial is by far the greastest hitter I have ever seen. But the book makes him sound like a Saint. But for one 8y/o boy that he snubbed in 1960 he was just another grown up not to be trusted. As a work of historical fiction it is an average book.

    Easy read; must have for Cards fans!

    Great book, however it doesn't read like most biographies. This is basically a book tooting Stan Musial's greatness horn...a horn that needs to be tooted more often if you ask me.
    It is not a "he was born, he grew up, he made it to the MLB, he retired" type of biography, so if you're looking for a book with a lot of factual information, this isn't it. It is more like a compilation of stories from people who knew Stan the Man in addition to facts and information about his life. All in all though, a really good picture of the greatness of The Man!

    Excellent bio about a classy Hall of Famer

    Baseball became important to me in the early '60s as the career of Stan Musial was winding down. This bio does an excellent job of telling the story of the ballplayer and of the man. A real classy player and a classy person. This will renew interest in THE MAN who was so important to the game.......while he is still with us. Recommended reading for the true fan of the game.
