Even if you're not a baseball fan, but most especially if you are, you will appreciate Jamie Moyer's tenacity when it comes to perfecting his craft and searching for the mental toughness needed to succeed in the game of baseball and the game of life. I thoroughly enjoyed all the wisdom that he shared even in the face of constant adversity. His "old school" attitude is what's missing in today's superstar athletes. There's no "I" in team...

Informative, insightful and inspiring! Moyer provides an informative retrospective on memorable teams (Mariners & Phillies) from the mid 1990s - late 2000s, insights into the art of pitching plus living an inspired life through helping others. His approach to his craft reminds the reader that patience, persistence and hard work are the foundation of success. Moyer's charitable outreach to children facing grave illness is very touching and heartwarming. Finally, his valedictory pitching feats in the minor leagues is a stirring tribute to the timeless attraction of baseball to all generations.

I'm not a sports fan, but I enjoy stories of the determined soul who pursues their dream, even if it is playing ball. This is an enjoyable tale with a likeable star, though the book jumps around and is really spare on baseball stories - especially when you consider Jamie Moyer had a 25 year career in the game. I heard Moyer on the radio, so I'm at a loss to understand the disconnect between the great story he tells, and the way it comes across in the book.
