really liked it

Now I Can Die In Peace by Bill Simmons starts slow and gathers steam as it goes along. I've picked it up and put it down several times since I got it in late 2011. Once the narrative broke into the middle of the 2003 season, I was hooked in for good. Simmons writes with a relaxed, conversational style sprinkled with generous doses of humor and pop culture references. I'm not sure how this book would play with readers who are not longtime Boston Red Sox fans, but I for one enjoyed it, once I got into it.
