Overview

From hard-working farm boy growing up in post-World War I Van Meter, Iowa, to the youngest All-Star and longest-lived Hall of Famer, sharp-witted Bob Feller distills nine decades of hard-earned wisdom—gleaned from experiences both on and off the diamond—in his new Little Blue Book of Baseball Wisdom, a sequel to his best-selling Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom. Feller writes tellingly of the stars of his generation, but also shares the essential virtues which made him so successful—life lessons he learned from his father, who, eager to showcase his son's baseball talent, built a "field of dreams" on their Iowa farm when Feller was still a teen, lessons he learned fighting for his country in World War II, and lessons he learned subsequent to his baseball career.

Bob Feller is one of the most revered figures in baseball history. He was drafted by the Cleveland Indians, playing his entire career there, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Along the way, he threw three no-hitters and appeared on the cover of Wheaties. 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. Returning to baseball after the war, he topped the league in all major pitching categories and led the Indians to a World Series championship in 1948. He celebrated his 90th birthday in November 2008. Burton Rocks is the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Me and My Dad: A Baseball Memoir, about Yankees great Paul O'Neill and his father. He has published eight books and co-wrote Billy Wagner's exclusive 2006 playoff column for the New York Post.

    Baseball/Sports Wisdom for Living Life.

    Having grown-up watching Mr.Feller pitch and play for the Cleveland Indians, his "...Little Blue Book of Wisdom" portrays the man as he played and lived. I recommend this book as required reading for avid sports fans who need or want comparisons regarding what the gold standards of sports ethics or style that were once portrayed on the playing fields. Read this wisdom from one of baseball's all-time greats. It should be a living guide template for all athletes and people to follow.
