I DID NOT KNOW THAT THIS WAS WRITTEN AS A CHILDS BOOK.

No Easy Way was a great book because it detailed Ted Williams' season in which he hit .406, making him the last baseball player to ever hit over .400 for an entire season. The author, Fred Bowen, does a great job connecting Ted Williams' accomplishments with hard work, thus never giving up, which is the easy way. I really enjoyed the illustrations by Charles S. Pyle, and I really liked the authentic photographs that were sprinkled in throughout the book.
