    Do yourself a favor, buy this book

    Mr. Huber's book was a pleasant surprise - it was extremely well-written, thoughtful, engrossing...in general, just a great read. He had me misty-eyed after the first 10 pages. This book is a must-read for everyone, in particular fathers and sons. I almost pulled a 'Field of Dreams' while reading it ('Dad, do you want to have a catch?'). On a more serious note though it really did make me think about my family relationships -not just with my father but my mom and brother as well. One of the messages throughout the book is to make someone know how you feel before it's too late - and to make the most of the time we do get. The sports stories that are interspersed within make for interesting reading too.
