If you are looking for just the story of Mr. Robinson's baseball career, you will be disappointed. He spends less than 100 pages on his playing career, but provides some nice insights into his experiences. He is deeply appreciative of Branch Rickey and had a rocky relationship with Walter O'Malley. He details his interactions with the NY press and how his baseball career affected his wife and kids.
The final 150 pages are about Mr. Robinson's post-baseball career. He worked for Chock Full of Nuts Coffee and provided tremendous service to the NAACP. He discussed his decision to endorse Nixon over Kennedy in 1960 (something he would later regret), how he worked for Governor Rockefeller, and his numerous interactions with a variety of other significant political, business and cultural figures. Mr. Robinson has no problem criticizing himself, but as most people do in their autobiographies, he defends and justifies most of his actions. He is a much better writer than most athletes. His role in the civil rights movement was critical. His family experienced some problems and a severe tragedy just before he died in 1972.
This is an underrated autobiography. It resonates today.
