Not your everyday baseball story

If you're looking for something with exciting play-by-play, this is NOT the book for you.. If, on the other hand, you like a story that goes behind the scenes and searches out the inner workings of the characters, I think that you'll really enjoy "The Entitled."

I bought this book because I am familiar with Mr DeFord's history with Sports Illustrated, and he uses his years as a sportswriter to craft a story that, like his magazine articles, I could not put it down until I reached the last page; then was more than a little disappointed that we weren't taken to the end of the season. (Read the book and find out just what I mean...)

    Come on, Barnes and Noble, quit being penny wise and pound foolish. Give your readers something back by offering up a first class read. Kindle anyone?

    NOT impressed.

    Had to cease reading, i was bored to tears from the inactivity of the characters. Story moved forward only after many, many, many pages of historical and anecdotal information that was unneeded by the supposed action. In fact, after introduction of pending termination of the manager and his dinner with his daughter, i was hard presseed to find ANY ACTION. Glad it was a free selection......

    Not recommended

    I read through the first chapter of The Entitled hoping the story would get better. It didn't. Mid way through chapter two, I started a new book. I have an extensive library of baseball books. This will not become part of my library.

    REALLY?

    They give away the writers on the rise but what about the already famous writers? I'm a little upset.
