Review:

"I came into baseball with a strikeout," Kirk Gibson readily admits in his autobiography, "and I went out with a strikeout. I came in being humbled, and I went out being humbled." In between his humiliations, though, the former Tiger and Dodger outfielder played some of the most passionately charged baseball in recent memory, his apotheosis coming in the opening game of the 1988 World Series with the most improbable--and memorable--home run since Babe Ruth's called shot. What makes this autobiography so intriguing is its opulence. With his fiery temperament, his uniform constantly dirty, and a pair of bad legs in constant need of repair, Gibson was like an old junker that wouldn't stop running. His book, on the other hand, is a glitzy, photo-filled, coffee-table-sized Mercedes, beautifully designed and written with insight.
