My Dad, Yogi was written by Dale Berra, Yogi's son. It was written as a love letter to his father, who was by all accounts one of the greatest and iconic baseball players to live and play the sport of baseball. It also is one of the most poorly written books I have read. While the story is heartfelt and does portray Yogi, as well as the entire family's history, it is in serious need of major editing. I enjoyed the stories, but it was exceedingly repetitive and in spots, run on.
If this book were edited correctly, I feel it would have an audience. Otherwise, it's destined to be read only by true baseball and Yogi Berra fans and in the bargain bin at Ollie's. I usually am not so harsh with reviews, but I must warn the reader with this one.
Thanks to #NetGallely for the opportunity to review this book prior to publication in exchange for an honest review.
