This book reads like Epstein's research notes. Rather than do the author's task of finding an interesting STORY to tell and being selective about what he includes, he just dumps everything he can find in a big pile for you in chronological order. He doesn't identify a lot of themes, he doesn't focus too closely on any characters, he really doesn't cause you to care about anyone in the book, and at times you're just reading a list of stats and award winners and game results. This book drove me nuts, because the source material is great, full of colorful characters and events, but Epstein couldn't seem to edit it down in the slightest.
