Veeck: Baseball’s Greatest MaverickPaul Dickson (Walker and Company)

“Bill Veeck: Baseball’s Greatest Maverick incorporates the picaresque anecdotes and populist charm of Veeck’s memoirs into a narrative marked by Mr. Dickson’s broad knowledge and fluid authority. The result is a biography that newcomers to the Veeck legend are likely to find immensely appealing, but one that also makes him new again for those who have already savored the baseball showman’s own episodic volumes.”—Maxwell Carter, The Wall Street Journal

“An engaging biography of Bill Veeck…[Dickson] expertly evokes Veeck’s populist, garrulous public persona. Veeck is not as well remembered as he should be. Dickson’s book is a skillful corrective.”–Kirkus
