KIRKUS REVIEW

Another by the Grand Old Man in the year of his proposed retirement, this time a rambling, gossipy account of his career in baseball. Chuck-full of boyhood reminiscences, tales of personal and club ups and downs, travels, star discoveries, press relations and personalities, the book also mentions the outlook for the future -- for the """"A's"", college, high school and amateur baseball. There is a little amateur philosophy too, in an endearing passage in which Mr. Mack answers questions ""from the ladies"" covering smoking, drinking, the matter of ballplayers making good husbands, the secret of long life, immortality and good advice. For the fan and all admirers of a vigorous, almost legendary personality. Generously illustrated with photographs -- old and new. Sure to make a hit.
