This book isn't just about baseball,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Glory of Their Times (Taschenbuch)
After plowing through more than two dozen reviews that say this is the best baseball book ever written, you might be inclined to dismiss those sentiments as the worst example of hype. Don't. You will be the loser for it.
This book is superb for its baseball stories, but it is more than that. The men in its pages talk about what it was like to be young and alive in America at the turn of the century. You don't even have to LIKE baseball to enjoy this book, but it certainly helps.
Jacques Barzun has said that someone who wants to understand America must learn baseball. In the movie "Field of Dreams," James Earl Jones says, the one constant in America has been baseball. To understand what they're talking about, you must buy and read this book. And you'll enjoy yourself while doing so.
