Yogi Berra's gift for saying the smartest things in the funniest ways has made him America's beloved off-the-cuff philosopher. Now, finally, all of is famously quotable quotes have been gathered together by the author himslef. --a book of Yogi-isms.
This short book contains many of our favorite Yogi-isms. (If I have to define that term, this book may not be for you. On the other hand, maybe this would be a nice exposure to them!) It even contains a little background on where the quote came from, or what Yogi was trying to communicate plus some anecdotes from friends and former teammates. It also has some nice photographs, taken both on and off the field.
Unfortunately, there is so little content to this book that it felt like a quick money-grab by the publishers. I would have preferred a LITTLE more substance something that took me more than an hour to go through cover-to-cover.
