KIRKUS REVIEW

A storm-center of baseball, owner-operator Veeck recaps his career in a no-holds barred account of his activities through the years. He tells of publicity promotion and its results, and argues his reasons and rights in flouting and fighting traditional rules. He has stories of ""high jinks and low humor"", outstanding characters and favorites among the players, of the amputations on his leg and his recent collapse, of the difficulties with financing organizational and legal aspects of baseball. A controversial figure presents a large discussion panel for the dedicated.
