This book was an interesting and entertaining read if you're a real fan of baseball trivia, oddities and history. There's some real tough and obscure questions here, it's more of a book you'd want to sit and read by yourself and learn something as opposed to a book you'd use to actually 'quiz' another fan (if you get all these questions right, I bow to your superior baseball knowledge). Overall, the book is well written and has a light and often humorous tone, which I enjoyed. The only thing that really kept it from being a five star book in my opinion is the occasional inaccuracies and repeat questions. One note, in this book the answer immediately follows the questions, as opposed to some books where you need to flip to another page for the answer. I consider this a plus, but other's might prefer the other layout.
