Overview

What Time Is It? You Mean Now?: Advice for Life from the Zennest Master of Them All by Yogi Berra

Could Confucius hit a curveball?
Could Yoda block the plate?
Can the Dalai Lama dig one out of the dirt?
No, there is only one Zen master who could contemplate the circle of life while rounding the bases.

Who is this guru lurking in the grand old game? Well, he's the winner of ten World Series rings, a member of both the Hall of Fame and the All-Century Team, and perhaps the most popular and beloved ballplayer of all time. And without effort or artifice he's waxed poetic on the mysteries of time (“It gets late awful early out there”), the meaning of community (“It's so crowded nobody goes there anymore”), and even the omnipresence of hope in the direst circumstances (“It ain't over ‘til it's over”).

It's Yogi Berra, of course, and in What Time Is It? You Mean Now? Yogi expounds on the funny, warm, borderline inadvertent insights that are his trademark. Twenty-six chapters, one for each letter, examine the words, the meaning, and the uplifting example of a kid from St. Louis who grew up to become the consummate Yankee and the ultimate Yogi.

Yogi's good humor and outlook on life is brought out nice in this book. It's not the best read I've had, but it was fast and amusing. I think it delivers some good messages for younger people. Especially if they are into sports. Baseball!
