And it would blow everybody's mind If they could see just what lies behind The velvet curtain, the office . The biggest culprit of this is, without a doubt, the horrible excuse for journalism known as Fox News.

And it would blow everybody's mind If they could see just what lies behind The velvet curtain, the office doors I'll give them no choice I'll give them no choice. I can't catch my breath, been working to the bone Dottin' on all the "i's" and crossin' every "t" I own This ain't pullin' thread, no, baby this is war I'll be the cog to end their cash machine They'll rue the day the hound came to their door. I fear that if I delve into this any further it will derail from this into a full-on rant and let’s face it: Neither of us need that negativity in our lives right now.

Nellie Fox was one of my favorite baseball players during the 1950s and I agree that he should have been in the Hall of Fame long before he was inducted...The writers however make him out to be a saint and spent too much time in the book talking about how he had been wronged by not being placed in the Hall sooner..The writers even speculate and point fingers towards his ex-manager Al Lopez as being the culprit for delaying his induction. I guess it shows that it is always better for a professional writer to write the book, instead of old family friends....I found the book interesting only because I was a Nellie Fox fan, however I think a professional writer instead of a fan could have done a better job. I would just recommend this book to true Nellie Fox fans, because it is far from being a classic baseball story...Larry Carli

My husband loved it and he had been wanting this for a long time. He's already
Read it and really enjoyed learning more about Nellie.

Should make for a good read. Though not a diehard White Sox fan, have long been fascinated by the name "Nellie Fox". A recent visit to Chicago only whetted my appetite, prompting me to learn all that I can about him!

I will have to decide between him and Al Lopez when I read their respective bios. LOL.

The writer did spend a little too much time on how "Foxie" was wrong-ed by the HOF gang. It is an interesting read and all die hard fans of Fox should read this book though. At 5'7" and MAYBE 160 lbs Nelson Fox made his mark in baseball by being an outstanding contact hitter, perfect fielding 2nd baseman, and in general - one tough guy to strike out. Remember that in 1959 Fox was AL - MVP batting .302 while hitting ONLY 2 home runs !! In that 1959 World Series he hit .375. Class dismissed.
