Praise

"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 04/21/2012

"[A] lively and informative biography. . . . Dickson deftly captures this complex character." - Steven Roberts 07/21/2012
