All Guts No Glory is a memoir of a father who sacrifices his time and self-respect to become a first time little league coach, during a season in which his team loses every game. It is also a humorous and contemplative critique of youth sports in America. It is also a tender and self-deprecating meditation on parenting. And finally, it is also a portrait of Seattle, as told and revealed through the words of the players, parents, coaches, and umpires of the Capitol Hill league. Alternatingly light and dark, with sharp bits of irony and social criticism, as well as deep affection for the game of baseball, The Reluctant Apostle is a narrative of many levels, all of them entertaining, some even enlightening.
