A Fun Fast Read!

Yogi surprisingly give some good words of wisdom and convinces us that there is more to the mental make-up of one of the greatest ballplayers ever than the quotes that he is known for.

Yogi provides a lot of insights to life in general and provides a lot of good advice in a book that I read in less than 2 hours. Based on the price it is probably better to take it from the library, than to buy it.

About this book

Wiki

 Upping the ante of such bestselling titles as It Ain't Over and The Yogi Book, When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It: Inspiration and Wisdom from One of Baseball's Greatest Heroes collects more anecdotes and bon mots from the Yankees' Hall of Fame sage, Yogi Berra. A collaboration by Berra and Dave Kaplan, who is executive director of the nonprofit Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, a sports education facility at Montclair State University (close to Berra's home in Montclair, N.J.), the book pairs 40 classic Berra aphorisms "It's déjà vu all over again" and "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded" among them with Berra's glosses and expansive colloquial commentary to help readers in their own decision making. Along the way, we learn the secrets to his 50-year marriage with "Carm" (they "talk over everything") and to his three-time MVP career as a player and pennant-winning seasons as a manager.  From PW.
