Earl Weaver explains baseball strategy in a very clear and sometimes humorous way. He lets the reader know what he feels is the right strategy for any given situation and why he feels that way. Some of his feelings reflect the basic tendencies of a baseball manager while many others reflect his personal methods of managing a team. A lot of his decisions were not "by the book" but he explains in detail why his maneuvers were actually better than what the average manager might do. Weaver shows clearly that all situations are different and his managerial decisions were made for a certain situation and for a certain time. There is a great mix of historical Baltimore Oriole personnel along with past game results that illustrate clearly his methods. Weaver goes into great detail to demonstrate how a successful baseball manager must use all of his available resources, especially his personnel, to get the most out of his team. His success as a manager indicates that there must have been a "method to his madness".
