I am not a baseball fan but this book just grabbed me from the beginning with its holographic cover and stylish modern graphics. The informal tone of the narrator reminded me of an old sports announcer and the story is compelling a great athlete that has to find himself to full express his talent. I also appreciated the mention of his sitting out a game for the Jewish high holidays. We often under-appreciate this side of athletes and this was an important value point. Definite must read.
