The Yogi Book
Celebrate one of the greatest and most beloved baseball players who ever lived—and certainly the most quoted. The Yogi Book is the New York Times bestseller filled with Yogi Berra’s immortal sayings, plus photographs, a career timeline, and appreciations by some of his greatest fans, including Billy Crystal and Tim McCarver. Yogi Berra's gift for saying the smartest things in the funniest, most memorable ways has made him a legend. The Yogi Book brings all of his famous quotes together in one place—and even better, gives the story behind them. "It ain't over till it's over."—that’s Yogi's answer to a reporter when he was managing the Mets in July 1973, and they were nine games out of first place (not only quotable, but prophetic—they won the pennant). "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."—Yogi's comment to Stan Musial and Joe Garagiola about Ruggeri's restaurant in St. Louis in 1959. "It gets late early out there."—Yogi describing how shadows crept across Yankee Stadium's left field during late autumn afternoons.

What Time Is It? You Mean Now?: Advice for Life from the Zennest Master of Them All
What Time Is It? You Mean Now?: Advice
Could Confucius hit a curveball? Could Yoda block the plate? Can the Dalai Lama dig one out of the dirt? No, there is only one Zen master who could contemplate the circle of life while rounding the bases.Who is this guru lurking in the grand old game? Well, he's the winner of ten World Series rings, a member of both the Hall of Fame and the All-Century Team, and perhaps the most popular and beloved ballplayer of all time. And without effort or artifice he's waxed poetic on the mysteries of time (“It gets late awful early out there”), the meaning of community (“It's so crowded nobody goes there anymore”), and even the omnipresence of hope in the direst circumstances (“It ain't over ‘til it's over”). It's Yogi Berra, of course, and in What Time Is It? You Mean Now? Yogi expounds on the funny, warm, borderline inadvertent insights that are his trademark. Twenty-six chapters, one for each letter, examine the words, the meaning, and the uplifting example of a kid from St. Louis who grew up to become the consummate Yankee and the ultimate Yogi.

Lawrence Peter (Yogi) Berra quit school after the eighth grade and later became synonymous with the malapropism, but it was all just a mask. Berra was not just the heart of the New York Yankees' dynasty in the 1950s, he was its beautiful mind. Manager Casey Stengel said he never had a player who had a better understanding of what a team needed to win. And Yogi was arguably the greatest winner the game of baseball has ever known, having played in 14 World Series (winning a record 10) and participated in seven more as a coach or manager, putting him in 21 of the 34 Series contested between 1947 and '81.While no player ever knew more success or took part in more famous baseball moments, Berra's fame as a wordsmith outlasted his on-field achievement. One of the most quotable figures in the world, Yogi mined wisdom from simplicity in his observations and remarks like “It ain't over till it's over” and “It's deja vu all over again.” He was an American original and, upon his death on September 22, 2015, left 90 years of legacy behind. In this beautiful, unique tribute edition, Sports Illustrated honors this major league icon with 72 pages of classic photographs and peerless reporting as Yogi's life is celebrated in three parts: player, sage and legend.Please note that this produ...
