    In the spring of 1977 Reggie Jackson should have been on top of the world. He was the first big-money free agent, wooed and flattered by George Steinbrenner into coming to the New York Yankees. But Reggie was about to learn, as he writes in this memoir, that until his initial experience on the Yankees "I didn't know what alone meant." His manager, the mercurial, alcoholic, and pugilistic Billy Martin, never wanted him on the team. Most of his new teammates, resentful of his contract, were aloof at best and hostile at worst. Brash and outspoken, Reggie hadn't realized how rumor and offhand remarks can turn into screaming negative headlines. Sickened by Martin's anti-Semitism, his rages, and his quite public disparagement of his new star, ostracized by his teammates, and despairing of how he was stereotyped in the press, Reggie had long talks with his father about quitting. But then: Reggie vowed to persevere; his pride, work ethic, and talent would overcome Martin's nearly sociopathic hatred. Gradually, he would win over the fans, then his teammates, as the Yankees surged to the pennant. And one magical autumn evening, he became "Mr. October" in a World Series performance for the ages.
