This book was penned by the man who was lambasted for his Disco demolition stunt in Cominsky Park. In the middle of a doubleheader, the promoters put a box of disco records in the middle of the field with a bomb. When it exploded, fans ran onto the field and commenced creating their own disco record explosions. This eventually caused the cancellation of the second game is considered a travesty in baseball lore.

However, it has become part of baseball lore. From a marketing standpoint, it was brilliant. How many marketing stunts have 25th anniversary DVDs?

This is a book about embracing failure, laughing, trying something new, and of course having fun. The book largely follows Mike Veeck and his father’s philosophies and antics with baseball (and a few other businesses they tried). It’s a fun book that those who are a little disgruntled or inspired with their workplace should read. Surely, you will find something that will make you laugh and improve your own workplace.

I had wanted to read this book written by the owner of the St. Paul Saints for quite some time. When I found it on audio book I couldn't pass it up.

This book was more amazing than I had hoped for. It is not just on the Saints but really about how to apply the same attitude that makes the St. Paul Saints the best entertainment dollar in the Twin Cities (even though they compete against superior products like the Minnesota Twins, and the Minnesota Wild) to YOUR work place.

Frequently I will recommend books I liked to friends/family, rarely I will go as far to purchase it myself. This one was so good that I actually purchased another copy of the audio book before I even finished it.

Its not just a self-help book either. It truly is great art. I argue that great art is that which provokes an emotional response, and this audio book had me laughing, and crying, more times than anything I have ever heard.

I just hope I can find the courage to make "Fun is Good" in my workplace, or find another if its rejected here.
