I'm a huge fan of Bouton's "Ball Four", a legendary book he wrote in 1969 that sort of blew the doors off the baseball world, this book is not nearly as good. Written right after the publication of "Ball Four", it's a hodgepodge of chapters dedicated mostly to the response Bouton received for writing that book--both from within and outside the baseball world. That only goes so far so 200+ pages talking about reactions to a book stops my interest fairly quick.
This is the book my husband brought me to read while I was in the hospital waiting for the birth of our first child! Hubby was an avid baseball fan so it didn't surprise me that this was his choice. I gave the book a try and thoroughly enjoyed all the stories. Luckily I understood all the baseball terminology thanks to having attended many baseball games. I would recommend this for a fun read!
