Hustler’s Handbook – Bill Veeck

Just finished Bill Veeck’s Hustler’s Handbook. Great stuff. Veeck is so inspiring. This book does pale in comparison to his autobiography, but Veeck is an inspiration. His skills as marketer and business man are the pinnacle. I will attack his son Mike Veeck’s after I finish Seth Godin’s Purple Cow.

Cannot wait til tuesday’s all star game. it was such a treat to myself as a youth. I always kept score, taped the game and bought myself Chinese Food.

I am still the leading bidder on the Red Sox Statue of Liberty. I am a bit nervous though as my boss does not think it is as great an idea as I do.
