Overview


The beloved philosopher Yogi Berra has a gift for saying the smartest things in the funniest ways. His off-the-cuff wisdom is the stuff of legend—surprising, immediate, profound, and endlessly quotable.

Why never to give up:"It ain’t over till it’s over.”

Advice on finding your way:"When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

The mind-body problem:"You can’t think and hit at the same time.”

Gathered together by the man himself, The Yogi Book is the definitive collection of Yogi-isms. It includes appreciations from some of Yogi’s biggest fans, and a time line of his unparalleled career, from days playing sandlot ball on “the Hill” in St. Louis to his milestones as a Yankee catcher—ten World Championships, three-time American League MVP, 15 All-Star Games, instant Hall of Famer—to his life as a manager, family man, and all-around sage.

This short book contains many of our favorite Yogi-isms.  (If I have to define that term, this book may not be for you.  On the other hand, maybe this would be a nice exposure to them!)   It even contains a little background on where the quote came from, or what Yogi was trying to communicate – plus some anecdotes from friends and former teammates.  It also has some nice photographs, taken both on and off the field. Unfortunately, there is so little content to this book that it felt like a quick money-grab by the publishers.  I would have preferred a LITTLE more substance – something that took me more than an hour to go through cover-to-cover. It is what it is.   RATING: 3 stars.

This is a short book which features some of the best quotations to come from a baseball player (or anyone else for that matter). Yogi, each time he opens his mouth manages at once to be inane and wise. A little background to each saying fleshes the book out and some contributions from his family finish the book off nicely. My only complaint is that there should have been more.
