Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I knew very little about Stan Musial before reading this book and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him through Vecsey's writing. Details that may have seemed mundane early in the book, created "ah, that's why he wrote about that moments" later on.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Stan the Man!
What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?
I've listened to a couple other books that Brick was OK with. Apparently biographies are not his strong suit as he over dramatizes the reading to the point that I had to set down my iPod and walk away. Listening to this book you would think Bricks, breathy, emotionally laden description of the best cuts of meat in Stanley's restaurant was akin to the death of a Pope! I will think twice before ever getting a book read by this narrator.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I learned an awfull lot about an American baseball great that is hardly mentioned when great hitters, great players, and great men of baseball are brought up. I'm sort of glad that Musial was in the Midwest. Who's to say that he'd have put up the same great numbers that he had with the Cards? A great man in the right place, at the right time. This is someone all of today's players should strive to be like. A bit more humble, gracious, and a bit more honest.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about a great ball player that is worthy of much more recognition and someone who deserves to have his name in brought up in every conversation with regards to being a memorable person and ball player.
