"Comprehensive and interesting portrait of one of baseball's most successful managers. . . . A compelling look at a legend and an era."-Kirkus Reviews (Kirkus Reviews 20070313)
"[A] mother lode of data, stories, perceptions about one of the legendary figures in the history of the national pastime. Like a fine wine, Connie Mack and the Early Years of Baseball brings back Mack as player, manager, owner. If you are into baseball, get into this tome."-Harvey Frommer on Sports (Harvey Frommer on Sports 20061128)
"No other baseball manager is going to win-or lose-as many games as Connie Mack did in his fifty years managing the Philadelphia Athletics. A biography of Mack cannot help but be a history of baseball in the first half of the twentieth century, and this biography is a feast of interesting facts and judgments."-George F. Will, syndicated columnist and author of Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball (George Will 20060821)
"From the early beginnings of baseball into the modern era, no figure dominated the game like Connie Mack. In Norman Macht's book the legendary patriarch finally gets his deserved recognition from a serious historian. Macht has turned out a book which provides a true insight into baseball and its beginning as the National Pastime."-Ernie Harwell, Hall of Fame broadcaster for fifty-four years, the last forty-two for the Detroit Tigers (Ernie Harwell )
"As a catcher and manager, Connie Mack deserves much of the credit for writing `The Book' on baseball strategy and the managing of men. How he did it all is told here for the first time."-Roland Hemond, three-time winner of Major League Baseball's Executive of the Year award (Roland Hemond )
