it was ok

Boy am I glad this book is finished -

I admit, in perhaps a personal failing, I LOATHE books that use a constant series of footnotes to interrupt the flow of a story, paragraph or even a simple sentence.

After 2/3 of this book, I began to realize you could read the book without consulting the footnotes -- they rarely included something new or informative for anyone who is a baseball fan.

Now, the time between its publication and me reading this book may have contributed to the "yawner" quality I found with this book. I can't imagine if I read this five years ago if it would have wow'd me anymore than it did now.

I would not recommend this book unless you had trouble sleeping...
