Master of 12-15 pages -- litttle shaky otherwise
The 1st of half of this book is some of the most compelling, concise and precise writing I have ever encountered. His 12 to 15 page profiles of athletes, most of whom I could not have cared less about, left me utterly astounded at how much I took in and enjoyed his clean story telling and dry wit. However, the next section was marginal, and his columns section was near terrible. Under 5 pages the man simply cannot finish a complete thought or lead you to a place that compels you to finish it for him. Yet, the profiles section is so stunningly beautiful in its grace and style that it pays twice over for the cost - just stop at page 179!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
