A chronicle of Bill White's life through his struggles to be accepted by baseball's establishment (both before and after his playing career) and, for Yankee fans, an extremely funny chapter as Phil Rizzuto's broadcast partner. His anecdotes here are laugh out loud funny. (Hint: Do not read this chapter in the library!). That said, I later was puzzled with his decisions regarding his friend after Mr. Rizzuto passed. While I have not walked in Mr. White's shoes, reading this book gave me the feeling of a certain bitterness that White still carries with him to this day.
