Amazon.de

Baseball is another solid hit in the popular Dummies series. With its chatty style, snappy graphics, and enjoyably informative top-10 lists, the book sticks to the Dummies format better than most pitchers follow their catchers' signs, a plus to be sure. The real plus, though, resides in the deftness of Joe Morgan's voice. The former Hall of Fame second baseman-turned television analyst has proven himself a natural communicator in the booth; he comes across just as comfortable, informative, and thorough in print. His enthusiasm spills over, but not at the expense of his broad knowledge. Morgan, naturally, covers the bases--hitting, pitching, fielding, running, coaching--with plenty of whys teamed up with the requisite how-tos. For added expertise he calls on fellow pros such as Hall of Famer Bob Gibson and MVP third-baseman Ken Caminiti. Deceptively sophisticated, Baseball for Dummies is a marvelously good-natured introduction to the game, but it also hurls enough insight to hook baseball's more advanced students.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good Material, but Not For Dummies 4. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book has some good stuff, but it's definitely not for dummies, at least not for a baseball virgin like me. The presentation is extremely unclear and there are a lot of omissions in the main text (like, what on earth is an RBI?). After I read the book I still felt like a virgin, so I bought a copy of "Complete Idiot's Guide for Baseball," which is much better and cheaper, too.

As an avid baseball fan for most of my life, I often did not understand aspects of the game (e.g. types of pitches and how they work) to a great degree. Joe Morgan, in Baseball for Dummies, not only explains this information and other aspects of the game, he does it with unabashed enthusiasm and a simplicity that has only deepened my love and appreciation of our national pasttime. This book is a must-read for baseball fans at any level of understanding.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
As a little league mom who grew up a basketball fan this was a great instructional book. I am now heavily involved in little league and use this book often. When my son asks questions about the game I have a good, easy to use, resource. I also use the player tips and stats in our team newsletter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent for beginners and all the way up to pros 15. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book was amazing. It taught me how to pitch fastballs, curveballs, knuckleballs, etc. It tells you what you need to play all the positions in baseball. It teaches you to bat, to catch, it teaches you eveything. It also tells you how to calculate batting averages! It also has records and neat info at the back of the book. One example of the info is: The top ten records least likely to be broken. So all in all if you want to play baseball buy this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tries to cover too many bases 8. Mai 2004
Von Robin C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is fun to read and very well written. However, it seemed to try too hard to suit all audiences. The danger in that, of course, is that it doesn't do a great job for any one type of reader. I got this book for the basic baseball knowledge it contains--I recently got "hooked" on baseball, and wanted to know more about the rules, how to keep score, how statistics are computed and what they mean. And there is some of that in this book. However, a great deal more of the book is aimed at little leaguers--how to pick out equipment, how to practice, and so on. Then there are the sections on great players. I think the readers who pick up this book are going to want more in-depth information on the particular area they are interested in. So, this book may be your first book on baseball, but it won't be your last! Just whets the appetite, so to speak.
The book tries to do too much, and would have better served the reader by concentrating on one area. Nonetheless, Joe Morgan comes across as very knowledgeable and a great guy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book for really knowing baseball 16. August 2006
Von Gary Bisaga - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am a huge Dummies fan. So when I recently decided to learn more about baseball, I naturally turned to the Dummies guide. What I found was a book that, true to its name, does help a person who knows absolutely nothing about baseball. If you knew nothing about baseball, you could pick up this guide and read the first 3 chapters, and become conversant.

It also has a good deal of detailed information for those who play and want to improve their game. Strategy on hitting, pitching, running, and just about everything else about baseball is presented. This is also good stuff.

So aside from a minor though annoying problem in this book - which I will note in a moment - this is an all-around great book. Joe Morgan, hall-of-fame second baseman, and a cast of other well-known major leaguers contributing bits on their own positions make this book an excellent reference on baseball.

My problem with the book is that this book is difficult for me as a person in the middle ground of those who grew up around baseball, playing it occasionally but not seriously, and never having a deep knowledge of the game. For example, he starts using the player numbering system used on scorecards early in the book, but does not explain it until chapter 18. I have found this kind of problem several times in this book. In fact, it's not so much a matter of the information being lacking - it just seems not well organized or indexed.

But this is a relatively minor point. Get this book if you really want to know baseball!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much, too little. 23. Mai 2001
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
An excellent book, but badly focused. It really needs to be split into 'Playing Baseball for Dummies' and 'Watching Baseball for Dummies'.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Baseball How-To Book Ever! 8. Mai 2002
Von Bruce Byerling - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Joe Morgan was a small man who became a Hall of Famer and the greatest second baseman ever by dint of hard work and intelligience. In Baseball for Dummies he translates that intelligience into a comprehensive primer that will captivate baseball novices and diehards. Joe starts with the basics ("This is a baseball..") and gradually moves the reader up to the more nuanced aspects of the game. The book is accessible to anyone who can read, yet it never talks down to the reader. And the prose is lively enough to interest even the most casual fan.
I've seen the other books that try to reveal how baseball should be played. None of them are as informative or focused as the terrific guide.
