From the Inside Flap:

Much has been written about the great Joe DiMaggio, both fact and fiction. As the man who knew DiMaggio best, his longtime friend, attorney, and business manager Morris Engelberg felt it was time to set the record straight. With additional research and interviews by co-author Marv Schneider, a veteran sportswriter for the Associated Press, DiMaggio: Setting the Record Straight offers an intimate and honest view of a cherished American figure.

Joe DiMaggio was one of the most recognizable athletes of the twentieth century, yet he was also an intensely private man who kept his cards close to his chest. Only a small number of people were privy to Joltin’ Joe’s hopes, fears, and dreams, his intimate moments. Over the last sixteen years of DiMaggio’s life, Engelberg was a near-constant companion. He was with him until the very end, there at Joe’s side to hear the great ballplayer’s dying words.

In this engaging new book, Engelberg provides a rare glimpse into DiMaggio’s relationship with his estranged son and reveals DiMaggio’s feelings about Marilyn Monroe, the Kennedys, politics, and fellow ballplayers. It is a story of deep friendship, of unquestioned loyalty by a middle-aged man exhibiting a boyish devotion to a graying American idol.

About the Author:

Morris Engelberg was Joe DiMaggio’s business advisor, attorney, and confidante during the last 16 years of the ballplayer’s life. Engelberg was a devoted friend to his boyhood idol. Their close relationship gave him rare access to the private DiMaggio. Engelberg is an attorney in south Florida, specializing in tax and probate law.

Marv Schneider was a sportswriter and editor for the Associated Press for 43 years. He interviewed Joe DiMaggio several times and wrote a memorable piece for DiMaggio’s 80th birthday. Schneider broke the news of the Yankee Clipper’s death in 1999. He has been broadcasting sports stories for AP Radio since the network was established nearly 30 years ago, and he continues to serve as a correspondent. Born in Yonkers, New York, he currently lives in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
