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. The subject range is wide, and in the course of delightful personal narrative Mr. Mack touches upon boyhood reminiscences, tales of personal ups and downs, fortunes of the Athletics, changes in the game, scouting for baseball ivory, great stars and personalities, some thoughts on the Hall of Fame, the American Legion and baseball, baseball and ""big business"", a selection for an all-star team and a look into the future. There are also a few homilies, too, in an endearing passage in which Mr. Mack answers questions ""from the ladies"" covering smoking, drinking and dancing policy as well as discussions of the matter of ball players and marriage, long life, immortality, and friendship. For the fan and all admirers of this vigorous personality.
