His 2009 book on Yogi Berra, Yogi Berra: Eternal Yankee, was praised as "sturdy," "well-written," and "thorough" by the San Francisco Chronicle, but the New York Times thought it too enthralled with its subject.
In 2009 he was the target of a widely-read critique at the website Deadspin, which targeted Barra's subjective adoration for Derek Jeter.
