Bob Feller is a true baseball icon. Along with such legends as Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Ted Williams, he is recognized as one of the greatest players of the twentieth century. In fact, he was voted the greatest right-handed pitcher in the history of baseball.

But Bob Feller is known for his quick wit as much as for his fastball. In Bob Feller's Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom, the sharp-tongued Hall of Famer offers philosophical, anecdotal, and candid reflections on baseball and everyday American life. In the process he introduces us to such legends as Jackie Robinson, Ralph Kiner, and Joe DiMaggio the way he knew them--as baseball rivals, fellow sportsmen, and good friends. Bob Feller's Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom is a treasure trove of down-to-earth advice for baseball fans of any generation.

This book is most interesting when Feller writes on topics that he knows well (eg pitching). Do we really need Bob Feller to tell us that Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, etc. were ... Read full review

About the author (2001)

Bob Feller was one of the most revered figures in baseball. He joined the Cleveland Indians in 1936, when he was sixteen years old. At the peak of his career, he enlisted in the Navy and went on to become a World War II hero, receiving six battle citations aboard the USS Alabama. After being discharged in 1945, he rejoined the Indians and played with them until 1956. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. His is one of the most sought-after autographs in baseball, from New York to California, from old-timers to today's generation.

Burton Rocks, a seasoned freelance sportswriter and graduate of Hofstra University School of Law, is the coauthor of A King's Legacy: The Clyde King Story (also from Contemporary Books).
