Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There is no city in America where voices of reason are in greater need-and shorter supply-than Philadelphia. Fortunately, Ray Didinger has been stepping forward for more than three decades to serve as a paragon of sanity in a town where panic is always just a missed field goal away. As this book so beautifully reminds us, Ray has always had a knack for being as eloquent as he is professional. So who the heck cares if it took him a little longer to find just the right words? One Last Read proves once and for all that it was worth the wait."
—Jayson Stark, senior baseball writer for ESPN.com and longtime Philadelphia Inquirer baseball writer and columnist
