'With every...baseball book, Don Honig heaps delight on top of pleasure...He has worked the vein with skill and taste and enthusiasm enough to enrich all of us fans' - Red Smith. 'Honig has proven himself to be one of baseball's best and most important chroniclers...This is baseball history at its best. Fans will treasure it' - "Library Journal". 'We are given a new dimension - we are made to discover not only what happens on the ballfield, but how it happens' - "Newsday". 'Honig shows his knack for getting the most out of former players and managers with an ability to report his interviews entertainingly, informatively, and amusingly' - "St. Louis Post-Dispatch". 'A winning lineup of assorted baseball managers with good memories for good stories about people and baseball' - "Philadelphia Bulletin".The fifteen major-league managers interviewed in "The Man in the Dugout" represent six decades of baseball - men like Joe McCarthy of the New York Yankees and Walter Alston of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Each oral history, steeped in nostalgia and confidentiality, is a record of the triumphs and defeats of the man carrying the prime responsibility of a multi million-dollar franchise. Here the manager is revealed as a strategist, tactician, peacemaker, politician, ego-soother, and builder of self-confidence. He holds the toughest, most gratifying, and most insecure job in baseball. Donald Honig, a professional ballplayer turned writer, is also the author of "Baseball When the Grass Was Real" and "Baseball between the Lines", both reprinted as Bison Books.
