They Call Me Sparkyby Sparky Anderson, Dan Ewald
Born Goerge Lee Anderson, son of a painter and one of five children, this small kid with big ears turned out to be one of the winningest baseball managers of all-time. With determination, hard work, and a set of values instilled by his father and mother, Sparky went from the sandlot to big-time major league baseball. Accomplishing such feats as winning back-to-back World Series' in Cincinnati and one more in Detroit... he had the rare ability to shift from manager, to father figure, to disciplinarian. In a time of high salaries and pampered athletes, many will find inspiration in this unpretentious man. Nobody says it better than Sparky. In fact, nobody says anything quite like the baseball icon who lives life believing that being nice to people "doesn't cost a dime."

I loved it. You have an accomplished writer and then you have Sparky...in a way only Sparky can explain things. I loved how the book took the angle of having Sparky tell stories and then the writer also tell them his own way.
