Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The dismal history of the Chicago Cubs may be traced to their former method of interviewing prospective managers. A sample query: "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?" Blake (Baseball Chronicles, LJ 4/1/94) tells many such outrageous tales in this humorous book. Although not a necessary purchase, this will circulate well.
