Good, Not Great, Oral History of the Game
The concept, the players involved, the era - all led me to eagerly look forward to this book. Quite honestly, I was disappointed. Players in their own words, and we're talking Berra, Mantle, Killebrew, Ford, Brooks and Frank Robinson, etc., all talking about the game during the 1950s and 1960s, their respective introductions to the game and the major leagues, experiences, players they found to be the best of their times.....a winning combination. However, I think Vincent does and inadequate job of editing to provide a smooth flow to the reader. The book was simply choppy throughout, in my humble opinion. It isn't a terrible book by any means, it just was not at all up to what I expected and wanted.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
