If you have followed the Chicago Cubs for any period of time you can't help but love this book. Hearing multiple decades of former players express in their own words what it meant to play for America's favorite baseball team is touching, funny, and revealing of the intense loyalty to the team held by players and fans alike. This is a thoroughly enjoyable read
