    1. Read for Bookriot's Read Harder Challenge to read a book about sports. While I enjoyed this book greatly, I would not recommend it to someone who isn't well versed in baseball and has a little bit of knowledge of its history. I would suggest watching Ken Burns' Baseball documentary first. Also this book ends in 1990 and I would love an update to include the 2000s. Grover Gardener does a wonderful narration as always.

    2. To be fair, the author covers a lot of territory in a book with less than four hundred pages. What bothered me was some statistical references that were inaccurate (not by enough but I did notice). I highly recommend both his biography of Ty Cobb and John McGraw, but this book less so.

    3. Wow, I read a lot of baseball books in the early 90's. This is a solid history where each decade is given it's own history. I remember the chapter on the rise of the american league was quite good.
