Nowhere was his journey detailed better than in these collected stories from the Post.

    Good primer on Bryce Harper

    This book, compiled from Washington Post stories on Harper, follows his path from signing to the end of the 2012 season.

    Because this is a collection of WaPo stories, a lot of information is endlessly repeated. The reader will read more references to the College of Southern Nevada than they will ever see before or after. This endless repetition of information is the book's major weakness.

    Having said that, these stories taken together provide a primer on the 2012 All-Star and NL Rookie of the Year. For those baseball fans who live outside the DC Metro area, it is a great way to get acquainted with Harper.

    For $3, it is worth your time.

    Good winter read

    A nice light read giving solid if at times repetitive background information on the young stat. This book also provides some family stories. I only wish there were more athletes in this series from the Post.
