A BwM Book Review: Nine Innings to Success by Jim Palmer and Alan Maimon 7/1/16

Hey baseball fans!

Jim Palmer, one of the best pitchers of all time, accompanied by Alan Maimon, had his new book published about a month ago called "Nine Innings to Success: A Hall of Famer's Approach to Achieving Excellence." I just finished it, and boy was it good!!

"Nine Innings to Success" discusses Jim Palmer's working life, from when he was an All Star on the field to an All Star in the booth. His stories are funny, sad, and inspirational all at the same time, but the best part about this book was the 'nine innings.' Palmer has a certain way he does things and he highlights that way in a clear-cut fashion in this book. Because the book is about Jim Palmer, the things he does must be working. Included in his success story are anecdotes about other sports legends, like fellow Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. and fellow broadcaster Al Michaels, and lessons he learned from other people along the way, like his longtime Hall of Fame Orioles manager Earl Weaver. From the corporate world to public speaking, Palmer goes into depth on how his to-do list to success works in a multitude of fields and justifies his points by, you know, being Jim Palmer.


As someone who will be going to college soon, this book really helped me out a lot. It has changed how I think about carrying myself and taught me some valuable life lessons that I will be using in many situations to come. The book really makes you say: "If I follow these steps, I can be as successful as Jim Palmer," which says a lot. It bestows confidence in you while also giving you a checklist of what to do to be the best and how to do it. I enjoyed reading "Nine Innings to Success" not just because it was a good book to read, but because it's a good book to follow for the future.


I definitely recommend buying this book, which you can do on Amazon by clicking here. Thanks for reading this book review and I hope you enjoyed it. Check back soon for more of "all the buzz on what wuzz."
