    It aint over 'til it's over

    I only knew Yogi as the cuddly master of the malaprop who had played some ball years ago. What I learned is that he's one of the most accomplished athletes in the history of sports - and a pretty shrwed businessman, too. A well written and ubiased bio that's must read for any baseball fan and recommended for anyone who wants to read the story of a guy who came from nothing to become an American legend.

    Great primer for the greatest catcher ever

    While this book reads a little easily, and in fact seems very trite and cursory at the very end, almost completely glossing over Yogi's post-1999 involvement with the Yankees and life in general, this is a very well-done biography which does much to weed out truth from apocrypha in Yogi's life and give a more complete picture of the man I still regard as the greatest catcher ever to play the game. A perfect read for the beach or vacation...or even while waiting for Joe Girardi's 2008 crew to realize its potential.
