It's an OK review of the Red Sox history though I liked the book "Red Sox Nation" better. This seems to be too much from the perspective of 'beat reporters' and not first-hand player info and interviews (which Red Sox Nation had). I did like the last two chapters on the Jimmy Fund and "Save Fenway" though.

Comprehensive coverage of not only the Red Sox history but the stadium too. This is a rare subject, not every ball team deserves a book such as this one, the Sox do have a rich history and this story needed to be told.

A book for the true Red Sox fan; written before the pink hats and championships.
Long time Boston Globe columnist writes of the unique history, the allure, and the passion of baseball played by the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Uncovers a few good tidbits of info along the way. Having attended games here since 1973, let me tell you, it's always an event.

fun read; a little dated; it ends with a Save Fenway chapter as everyone was pushing for a new ballpark, and of course they were still under the Curse of the Bambino.
Doc Kinne
This was a very good, general Red Sox history book. Not a lot of facts and figures, but a lot of human stories. History must be made of both. Recommended.
Mike E
great book and stories about one of my most favorite places on Earth! Reading it put me in a seat and picturing a crowded day at the park!
I loved this snapshot of red sox history.
