The Yogi Book (Paperback)


"It's deja vu all over again" only better. "The Yogi Book," the "New York Times" bestseller, now has a fresh new design throughout, new photographs, a career timeline, and all-new appreciations by some of his greatest fans, including Billy Crystal. And it's timed to coincide with the 85th birthday of this American legend who's more beloved than ever.
As for the quotes, well, Yogi Berra's gift for saying the smartest things in the funniest, most memorable ways has made him a legend. Or, as "The New Yorker" put it, "Hardly anybody would quarrel that . . . Winston Churchill has been replaced by Yogi Berra as the favorite source of quotations." "The Yogi Book" brings all of his famous quotes together in one place and even better, gives the story behind them. "It ain't over 'til it's over." that s Yogi's answer to a reporter when he was managing the Mets in July 1973, and they were nine games out of first place (not only quotable, but prophetic they won the pennant). "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded." Yogi's comment to Stan Musial and Joe Garagiola about Ruggieri's Restaurant in St. Louis 1959. "It gets late early out there." Yogi describing how shadows crept across Yankee Stadium's left field during late autumn afternoons.
