Don Zimmer can write one of these books every few years, and each would be just as, if not more, interesting than the previous. The man is a plethora of entertaining information and philosophies. I loved Zim¿A Baseball, and couldn¿t wait for this one. Every page is full of memories, lessons, and humor. Absolutely enjoyable!

Don Zimmer breezes through his career in baseball, getting in a few choice digs at his former boss, George Steinbrenner, while waxing anecdotal about every baseball fan in America, from Gerald R. Ford to Paul Anka. The book is an easy read, and 'Zim' comes across as a thoroughly decent guy, modest about his achievements as a player and grateful for what baseball has brought him in life...including miraculous recoveries from two beanings early on. The highlight of the book was a chapter written by his wife of over 50 years, 'Soot,' who writes charmingly of their early years together...a wedding ceremony at home plate in a minor league park, getting stranded in a broken-down car on the highway while pregnant, and being notified that Zim had been traded just after setting up housekeeping 3,000 miles away. One quibble: The book is careless with facts, and Zim's ghost writer, reporter Bill Madden, doesn't know when to use 'who' and 'whom' in a sentence. Otherwise, a good read in the baseball off-season.

Simply stated, Don Zimmer is baseball. He represents everything good about the game. I can't imagine anyone not being able to relate to Zimmer's profound thoughts about baseball and life as expressed by him in this book.
