Jerry Coleman: Aviator, Hall of Fame Broadcaster, Baseball Player... AUTHOR?

Gaslamp Baller Winfields Ghost sent this along:

Jerry Coleman with Richard Goldstein's HANG A STAR: My Life in Baseball and Beyond, chronicling Coleman's childhood of poverty and violence, his career as the Yankees' second-baseman during their championship run in the DiMaggio and Mantle eras, and his years as a Yankee and still-active San Diego Padres' broadcaster, to Tom Bast at Triumph, by Paul Bresnick at Paul Bresnick Agency (NA).

I'm excited about this book, from the outside it seems that Jerry has led one of the coolest lives possible.  He's really seems to have done it all, I'd like to see what he has to say about it.
