    Comprenhensive Reading

    A comprehensive history of the Cubs. Well done. This book, along with two others ("The Best Team Ever" about the 1907 Cubs and "Crazy '08" about the 1908 Cubs) gives a fine portrayal of the early Cubs that exists no where else. A perfect gift for any Cub fan.

    'The Cubs' the book, is better than the Cubs, the team!

    If you think you know everything there is to know about the Cubs, you don't - at least not until you have read this remarkable book. From the very beginning to the start of the 2007 season, this book tells the story of the Cubs in a way no other book has ever even tried - as one big story, full of great characters, drama, and, yes, even victory once in a while. I particularly enjoyed the photographs, few of which I had seen before, that span every era of Cubs history. There are also terrific essays by writers like Rick Telander 'who appears in a photograph shirtless in the bleachers at about age twenty!'. If you must have every Cubs book, you must have this one, and if you have only one Cubs book, his is the one to have. Gift shopping made easy. I just the new owner is smart enough to read this and avoid making the same old mistakes!!

    On Our Way!

    So the Cubs just won AGAIN and my copy just arrived and I spent the next five hours DEVOURING this book. It's hard to say what the best part is because I started just looking at the pictures, but then I'd start reading and got hooked each time. I thought I knew a lot of Cubs history becasue I've lived a lot of i and read all the boks I could find but I've got to give it to the author. It's probably the best Cubs book yet except the one that ends with a world championship. An absolute must if you love the Cubbies.
