    All Time Classic Read

    This is easily one of best books about baseball ever written. It's also a first rate work of literature that easily bares comparison to a book about another troubled young man by a fellow you may have heard of by the name of J.D. Salinger, though it owes absolutely nothing to that book stylistically. Phenomenally evocative, with the kind of dead-on-grab-you-from-the-get-go-and-never-let-you-go-until-the-very-last-page writing only the best of the best manage (if they're lucky!). Whatever Mr. Jorden may think, the experiences he recalls so compellingly here are clearly the ones that enabled him to find his true gifts and tell a story no doubt known to countless rookie ball players but which no one else (so far at least) has even come close to telling so perfectly.

    A sports classic

    What makes this book so good is the fact that it examines issues that are larger than baseball itself. It deals with anger, frustration, loss and ultimately redemption. Because of the unravelling of his pitching skills, Jordan is forced to confront his shattered dreams and decide how to move beyond them and find what he can do with the rest of his life. His big league aspirations in tatters, he takes a positive route, using part of his signing bonus to attend college where he earned a degree in English. Jordan's odyssey gives the reader a rare and honest view of what it's like to kick around baseball's minor leagues.
