    Not Worth the Paper It is Printed On

    Rule number one of responsbile journalism is that you never sleep with the subject. Well, the author never heard of that one. There is no excuse for accepting an office or other perks for access, particularly when the author doesn't even attempt to ferret out dissenting views. The book purports to tell the recent story of the Red Sox, but it is very much a one-sided view, one that was solicited by the Red Sox themselves and designed to cast the current ownership group in the best possible light. The end result is a snapshot of a very big room taken from one angle and one angle only. Only the most slavish and uncritical of Red Sox fans will enjoy this, and even then, much of it is either already familiar or obviously suspicious and self-serving. I almost feel bad for the author because he clearly got so close to his subject(s) that he isn't even aware of the damage he has done not only to his own reputation but to journalists everywhere. He forgot to report - and the first thirty pages or so are cribbed from other books!
