Overview

Just as players and coaches are hitting their stride at spring training, a new book, This Gracious Season (Winter Publications, March 2002), reminds us what a magical season 2001 was for the San Francisco Giants and their Future Hall-of-Fame slugger, Barry Bonds.

About the Author

Josh Suchon, the Giants' beat writer for the Oakland Tribune, has a unique behind-closed-door access to Bonds and the team, which inspired him to chronicle his experiences of watching, listening and discussing Bonds' chase of the most hallowed record in all of sports -- the single season home run record. However this isn't just a book about home runs. It's about putting Bonds' home runs into context. What made them special as singular moments in time. What they did to fuel the anticipation of more home runs. And how, as a whole, they made 2001 one gracious season for Barry Lamar Bonds.

Editorial Reviews

Bob Nightengale
Josh Suchon smashes a home run of his own in this remarkable book about Barry Bonds. While Bonds produced the greatest individual season in baseball history, Josh was on the scene to capture the drama, from the first day of spring training until the climatic final weekend. This no holds-barred book is as riveting as Bonds' majestic shots into McCovey Cove, bringing new insight into this historic season that none of us will ever forget. Josh made sure he didn't miss the show. Now, he brings the show to us.
USA Today Baseball Weekly

For all any of us know, Bonds may be more complicated than calculus on an Etch-A-Sketch, but this book won't unravel that knot. It isn't meant to. It's meant to take a season like few others, juxtapose it against the man who made it and the men and women around him, and see what comes out at the other end. In this case, it's an index, a back cover, and a bar code on the bottom that gives you a hint of how much you should enjoy the book to make it worth the purchase price. This is Bonds' story, with the added advantage that it is told by someone who isn't Bonds, isn't paid by Bonds and doesn't have any particular animus toward Bonds. It is exactly as it purports to be --- the story of a season, filtered through the eyes of the people who lived it and watched it being lived. This Gracious Season is a great story, one that involves more than just Barry Bonds.
