KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is the hall of fame of baseball's great managers, from old ""Pop"" Anson, who helped revolutionize the game, down to the moderns, Connie Mack, Durocher, Shotlon, Stengel, Southwork, Dwyer and Boudreau. The author has interviewed all the great managers of recent years and explored the records and tapped the memories of those who knew the old greats,- McGraw, Fred Clarke, Frank Chance -- through the period when they were out to out each other's throats. Those were the days when baseball was rough and vicious. There are good stories here:- the yarn of the Yankees under Miller Huggins and Joe McCarthy who developed those outstanding teams of modern baseball. We learn how managers not only made great plays but developed great players. We get a fine picture of inside baseball at its best. Dyed in the wool fans -- from old timers to boys- will love it.
