    I have to admit that I did not finish the book I write this to protect other readers Don t buy the hype and don t waste your time It is not even worth one star I kept plowing ahead, hoping to find what Stephen King liked about it enough to write a blurb The only reason I can find that he would do so is he owed the publisher some kind of favor or was being held for ransom I love a good sports story and I love baseball I am not so blind as to think my sports heroes are perfect gentlemen, so I have to admit that I did not finish the book I write this to protect other readers Don t buy the hype and don t waste your time It is not even worth one star I kept plowing ahead, hoping to find what Stephen King liked about it enough to write a blurb The only reason I can find that he would do so is he owed the publisher some kind of favor or was being held for ransom I love a good sports story and I love baseball...

    Jeez, what an enormous asshole.I didn t expect much beyond bragging and self absorption from former Mets and Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra, member of the 1986 World Champion Mets squad And that s what I got I hoped to learn a bitabout his post baseball life as an entrepreneur and investing guru careers which both landed in the toilet after a grand theft auto conviction long story , but he had nothing to offer there except excuses and evasions Lame.The book is nothingthan a Jeez, what...

    Nails nailed itinthan one way I ve got to say that I loved Dykstra as a ball player If all athletes gave it what he gave the games would be so muchentertaining As a person though Cocky, arrogant, egotistical, brash, crass, lewdand a handful of other not so flattering adjectives describe could be used to describe him Not someone I would hang out with but that I didn t judge his book based on his character....

    I finished this book in a day while vacationing It s a remedially told story, with holes large enough to fit a semi, but interesting due to the baseball nuggets Lenny managed to uncover for us It s a tale of a narcissistic athlete first and baseball second The baseball portion which covers Dykstra s careers in high school, the Mets and Phillies is delicious and left me wantingof that His lack of awareness really began to grate my nerves towards the end, but there was a redeeming moment I finished this book in a day while vacationing It s a remedially told story, with holes large enough to fit a semi, but interesting due to the baseball nuggets Lenny managed to uncover for us It s a tale of a narcissistic athlete first and baseball second The baseball portion which covers Dykstra s careers in high school, the Mets and Phillies is delici...

    I can sum up Lenny Dykstra in three words.Ego, Ego, and Ego He might have a bigger ego than our current president Will give him credit, he is very persistent and driven The book covers Dykstra from his youth through present day If half of his stories are to be believed not sure if They should be, although some of it is public record , he has led one heck of an interesting life I should replace heck with some other four letter words to better reflect the author s writing style To say Le I can sum up Lenny Dykstra in three words.Ego, Eg...
