    A great story of the life of a true American sports hero

    Mr. Barra has done a fantastic job of bringing Yogi Berra's story to sports and history fans. I had expected a book about a great Yankee ballplayer written only about baseball. What I got was a book about a man and the time he lived in as a ballplayer, war hero, family man, and businessman. Yogi is shown to possess all the attributes and ethical standards so often talked about but so seldom displayed.

    Did I mention that Yogi played baseball? The book gives great insight into players and teams of the 40's thru the 70's, with background data and stories of the players on and off the field.

    I recommend the book for baseball fans and for readers who want insight into life in the working class area of St. Louis.

    A Winner

    I bought this as a gift for my dad for his 75th birthday. As a lifelong Yankee fan, he has read every book out there written by and about the Yankees. He loved it! It is now being passed around between by three brothers, also Yankee fans,

    Yogi Berra, more than a ballplayer

    I have not followed baseball since the 1994 strike wiped out the post-season and the subsequent changes - inter-league play, and the wild card - which in my opinion ruined the game; not to mention the use of illegal substances by today's players which taint the holy grail of baseball, the record book. With that said, I still remain a fan of the history of the game (pre-1994), and for anyone who loves the Golden Era of baseball, this book is a must read. I laughed and cried as I read this book. For those who think they know Yogi Berra, trust me, you don't. War hero, loving son, devoted husband and father, astute businessman, loyal friend and American icon are but a few of the titles you can add to this man's resume alongside of course, Hall of Famer. 'Yogi' takes us back to a simpler time and place when all seemed right in the world. Read this book and you will long for the day when baseball WAS indeed America's game and ballplayers were real people. God bless Yogi Berra we are lucky to have him among us.
