In this comprehensive and incredibly engaging biography each of Berra's baseball highlights (10 American League Pennants, 8 World Series Championships and 3 Most Valuable Player awards) is meticulously described. From his childhood growing up in St Louis Missouri's Italian neighborhood to his postplayer roles as a manager and coach Barra covers it all and what we embrace throughout is a great athlete and a good guy.
