An interesting book, but not an enjoyable one. Cramer sets out to tell the story of the man and does, but the book left me with the feeling it was all a bit one sided. The author paints a picture of a great ballplayer who is a flawed human being. Flawed in so many ways that it is hard to like him. The book appears to be carefully researched, but time and time again I found myself questioning the source of the point being made. The author also narrates the book, which was not a good idea. He may be a good writer, but I found his voice grating and boring. Should you listen to this book? It does tell the basic story of Dimaggio and the great New York Yankee teams of the era and for baseball fans that makes it worth reading. The story of the man, Joe D., left me bored and somewhat doubting the author's objectivity.
