- Sparky Anderson, Hall of Famer
"I have known Buddy Bell a number of years, as a competitor, teammate, and friend. I don't know of anybody more qualified to write a book about this subject. I am so glad that someone has finally decided to write about it, and to have it done by Buddy and his sons makes it even better."
- Mike Hargrove, manager of the Seattle Mariners
"Being a huge believer in the mental side of the game, I think it's great that a guy with as much baseball knowledge as Buddy Bell put his thoughts on paper. His passion and respect for the game is second to none."
- Todd Helton, first baseman for the Colorado Rockies
"An excellent insight on what in my opinion is the most important facet of the game."
- Rocky Colavito, retired Cleveland Indian and American League All-Star
"This book details how great players of the past, many of whom are Hall of Famers, prepared themselves mentally to excel at their sport. Anyone who has played baseball knows there is more to being successful than just talent."
- Ray Fosse, American League All-Star and broadcaster for the Oakland Athletics
"The mental aspect of the game is often overlooked. This book gives fans a different perspective into the great game of baseball."
- Alan Trammell, manager of the Detroit Tigers
"A fascinating account of the most important aspects of the game. From Albert Belle to Willie Mays, we hear from so many players, none more important than Buddy Bell, the most professional player-and man-I've met in twenty-five years of covering baseball. I really liked this book. I learned a lot."
- Tim Kurkjian, baseball analyst for ESPN
