As an editor, Mr. Balf should've known better than to break the first rule of story telling: STICK TO THE STORY!!! I was extremely frustrated and disappointed by Mr. Balf's juxtaposition of modern day sports in a story that took place at the turn of the 'last' century. I didn't need the constant reminders that Taylor and Munger were like the Michael Jordans and Lance Armstrongs paticipating in the NASCAR events of their time. For me, these distractions were akin to hearing a cell phone ring in the middle of a movie theater. The history, people, and events were rich enough to stand on their own and this book would've been so much better without them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
