Kings Of The Hill book. On the other hand, I couldn't shake the sense that Ryan's collaborator, Herskowitz merely recycled already told stories about Koufax, Drysdale, Seaver et. al. It left me with the feeling that since Ryan wrote an autobiography roughly around the same time that this book was merely an attempt to cash in on his mega-fame in the early 1990s.

Ryan entered the major leagues as a New York Met, and he dotes on memories of that team's early years as ""the strangest collection of athletes you can imagine. Although some pitchers he discusses (.

Just another baseball book, and despite Ryan's undisputed greatness as a pitcher, not a particularly memorable one. Ryan comes across in these pages as an engaging and appealing personality, but the book lacks any personal stamp. To say it's definitely not "Ball Four" may be unfair, since Ryan didn't intend to write that kind of tell-all book. But Bouton set a gold standard for memorable prose by a baseball player and Ryan just doesn't have Bouton's way with words. There are, however, a few entertaining stories about pitchers, such as this one about Don Drysdale: an umpire once ran his hands through Drysdale's hair, after members of the opposing team claimed he was putting Vaseline hair tonic on the ball. "When my wife does that," Drysdale told the ump, "she usually kisses me."
This book is only for hard-core baseball (and Nolan Ryan) fans.
Forget this one
Disappointing book filled with mistakes
