Editorial Reviews

Review

“MLB's only active knuckleballer--boasts a story compelling enough to be told forthwith…. Dickey credits his faith with overcoming myriad trials both personal and professional, but it never feels as if he's preaching.  Once an English-lit major and now a starting pitcher for the New York Mets, the author emerges as one of baseball's good guys, and someone who can write as well as he pitches. Dickey has set a new standard for athlete autobiographies.”
- Publishers Weekly, Starred review


“It's a gripping memoir, a brutally honest account of family woes, childhood abuse and his failures as a husband and father. But it's also a meditation on contemporary baseball that is insightful without throwing anyone under the bus, save the author himself. (And maybe Alex Rodriguez.) It might be the finest piece of nonfiction baseball writing since Ball Four.  Perhaps above all, it's a classic epic quest, a flawed hero's unlikely odyssey to the major leagues and to discovering the mystical pitch that helped him get there.”
- Jon Wertheim, Sports Illustrated


"Wherever I Wind Up is an astounding memoir--haunting and touching, courageous and wise."
- Jeremy Schaap, bestselling author, Emmy award-winning journalist, ESPN


"Nobody in baseball has overcome more obstacles than R.A. Dickey, and nobody writes about them with more honesty and insight. R.A. doesn't want to be called a hero, but he is exactly that, and when you read about his life's journey and his courage, you will agree with me. This is an awesome book by an awesome man."
-Orel Hershiser, ESPN Sunday Night Baseball analyst, former MLB All-Star


"R.A. Dickey is one of the coolest athletes I've ever met - a great mixture of soul and intellect ... This is an athlete worth knowing better."
- George Vescy, New York Times


"A wonderful and powerful new memoir."
- Jim Caple, ESPN


"I can't recommend Wherever I Wind Up enough."
- Gary Cohen, SportsNet NY (SNY)


"R.A. Dickey's book is unlike any other professional athlete's autobiography you have ever read. And that is a very good thing."
- Mike Bauman, MLB.com
