I received this book as a gift and was quite pleased with it. It provides an excellent overview of the game and doesn't shy away from controversial issues. The writing is very crisp. There is a recap of each season, each postseason and articles on some of the greatest players of the game and there are hundreds of historical photos. You can literally spend hours with this book. One of the things I liked best is you can pick it up and start reading it at any point and still get the full story. This is a fine addition to any baseball library.
