Dykstra's Book is a self serving, probably truthful narrative of his life. Seemed to me that there was a significant amount of purposeful omissions to make his case.
Can't recommend the book, can't dislike the book. It is what it is. There was nothing to keep you glued to it. It was ok, and that's about all. I was glad when I finished it. Sorry Lenny, you were a better player than you are a writer.

I love the book. It was a great story and I believe most of it to be true. The one gig I have is that the reader was not well invested in the story it seems. He did not emphasize the funny spots or the heavier spots well. I think it would have been much better served had Lenny read it himself.

I may have enjoyed this book more if I had a greater interest in baseball but it was interesting enough. I got the impression that the author was holding back and he didn't reveal much about his feelings and emotions nor did he take much blame for the consequences of his arrogance and inflated ego. Overall it was OK but I wanted more and listened through the inconsequential paragraphs hoping they would lead to something a little more controversial but mostly was disappointed. If you are into MLB then this book would capture your attention. Otherwise, I saw through it as a last ditch attempt by the author to claw back some money lost due to his bad dealings with property investments
What an exciting, intriguing story. Loved every bit. Lenny's a legend in my books and I would recommend this book to anyone. Baseball fan or not.
