Most interesting in this review are the snippets where some of the "facts" mentioned by Canseco are debunked.My favorite:
The 2001 spring training conversation he "recalls" with Boone has already been debunked by ESPN.com's Jeff Merron here [link], along with a few other of Jose's fuzzy recollections. Some of these are details, like whether he pinch hit for David Cone in Game 4 or Game 6 of the 2000 World Series. Others are pretty substantial mistakes, like his account of a monster home run he hit off Walt Terrell in Detroit in 1986, which was actually hit in 1987. By Mark McGuire. Small detail.

I'm betting this review is ten times better than the book...and I hate to give any attention to this book at all, but the link (I think) is worthy of reading.BUT, as this is a baseball blog by a guy who is linked on a lot of other blogs, I have to wonder... he is spelling Mark McGwire's name wrong on purpose... right?
