A review of Paul Dickson’s biography,  Bill Veeck: Baseball’s Greatest Maverick. Says the Los Angeles Times reviewer: “My first reaction when a copy of Paul Dickson’s new biography, Bill Veeck: Baseball’s Greatest Maverick, lands in my lap is to be curious if justice has been done to him, before turning a single page. I touch base with Mike Veeck, the great man’s son (a man of a few radical and wonderfully ridiculous notions of his own), to inquire if the descendants approve. ‘We’ve read it and enjoyed the easy flow and the research,’ Mike replies. ‘Mr. Dickson has won me over with his gentle prose.’” Here.
