Hideki Matsui: Sportsmanship, Modesty and the Art of the Homerun by award-winning author Shizuka Ijuin is entertaining and insightful.  Mr. Ijuin describes how he and his wife followed Matsui's career from best hitter in the Japanese league to super star of the New York Yankees. Yet, Hideki Matsui is more than a talented and gifted athlete.  He has been a crusader for human rights. In high school he spoke out against verbal abuse and bullying. Today he is a generous benefactor who has given money to earthquake and tsunami victims.  Matsui stresses that respect is more important than scoring runs. This book provides a unique glimpse into the life of one of the greatest and dignified athletes of our time, as well as Japanese culture.
