This is a must have book for anyone interested in both the semi-current and past greats of baseball, along with the stories that follow them. I feel that both Burns and Ward should have actually made this a two or three part series, going into much more detail. The stories and descriptions on players like Cobb and some of the Negro League players could have been extended. Other than that, a great buy, regardless of the price.
