Editorial Reviews

Bill James
The best in baseball writing....[Will] is a skilled writer; he is better writing about baseball than he is writing anything else. -- New York Times Book Review
David Plotz
Will is a trenchant rationalist when it comes to hardball; [his] baseball writing is so good, in fact, that he's even being mentioned as a candidate for baseball commissioner. -- Slate Magazine
Matthew Berke
A splendid collection...Will is a fount of memories about baseball's past. -- The Weekly Standard
Ron Rapoport
You cannot fail to be entertained by the joy and charm [Will] finds in the game. -- San Francisco Chronicle

Edward Herrmann reads these essays on our national pastime with genuine enthusiasm. Political columnist Will states here that nothing about baseball is trivialand he proves his point. As a bench sitter for an underachieving Little League team sponsored by a funeral home in Champaign, IL, Will began studying the game at an age when most boys were actually playing it. We should all be pleased that he didn't turn out to be just another great player. His observations are richly textured and colored with anecdotes that one will never forget. Baseball personalities seem to stride onto the field as if they never left. Chicago Cubs fans may want to chill out before listening to the author's opinions on their team, but all baseball fans will love this excursion into nontrivia. A home run!Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L., IA
