KIRKUS REVIEW

Photos of Reggie in uniform from age six through the Championship Season, with his first-person captions and commentary. After some slide-show voice-over (""This is my room at Arizona State. . . . This is the sixth game of the World Series against Tom Seaver. . . . Alvin Dark--he helped me to find some inner peace""), Jackson loosens up, but never to the point of revelation. Thus, ""I chose New York because I felt the people understood the game better. Not the ego trip. Not the self-centered idea of going out and getting the money and getting the most for me. . . . You know, when I think about it [the clash with Billy Martin] and start talking about it, it puts a bad taste in my mouth and changes my emotional state. . . . It was very vogue, as they say in New York, to be down on Reggie Jackson. And I wanted to thank people for sticking with me. . . . Aahhh! How Sweet It Is!"" For the fans.
