Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Find advice, history, answers galore in Bob Feller's Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom, written with Burton Rocks (A King's Legacy: The Clyde King Story). Born in Iowa just after WWI, signed to the Cleveland Indians at age 16 and inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962, Feller now presents the accumulated lessons and memories from a life of hard work, great success and sincere enjoyment. With much attention devoted to other leading lights of the sport, this loving chronicle will please baseball fans of all ages. ( Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Many libraries may already have Feller's autobiography, Now Pitching, Bob Feller (1990), but this book would still be a worthy addition. "Rapid Robert" has always had plenty of sharp-witted opinions. This volume is divided into short, easily digestible sections, and Feller writes tellingly of the stars of his generation. He really shines when talking about his father and how the old man, eager to showcase his son's baseball talent, built a "field of dreams" on their Iowa farm when Feller was still a teen. Recommended. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Bob Feller was one of the most revered figures in baseball. He joined the Cleveland Indians in 1936, when he was sixteen years old. At the peak of his career, he enlisted in the Navy and went on to become a World War II hero, receiving six battle citations aboard the USS Alabama. After being discharged in 1945, he rejoined the Indians and played with them until 1956. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. His is one of the most sought-after autographs in baseball, from New York to California, from old-timers to today's generation.

Burton Rocks, a seasoned freelance sportswriter and graduate of Hofstra University School of Law, is the coauthor of A King's Legacy: The Clyde King Story (also from Contemporary Books).

    Feller a legend like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and DiMaggio and Barry Bonds

    Author Burton Rocks really put together a wonderful book with Bob Feller here. Many factoids I'd never heard. I'm sure many of the reader hold out hope that you can make further observations at your web spot at Chatwithastar. Best of luck to you on your future endeavors.
