Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

Bill Veeck was a baseball owner like none other, irreverent and often ill-dressed. Much of what is known about Veeck’s life comes from his own autobiographies (Veeck as in Wreck and The Hustler’s Handbook). Dickson pores through primary sources to come up with a picture of Veeck as he may have really been, perhaps a little more concerned with the bottom line, but still an advocate for the “little guy.”
