I read it...but I dont agree with a lot of it. Im more of an "old school" type of guy and player, but it was a good book nonetheless.

Totally agree. If you are a baseball fan the must read book is Ball Four.

I "sparked" my way through that one :-D

But I have a feeling that if I had more time, it would have been a good book. I got the gist though.


I must say that book was worth reading. None of the other books I read, sparknotesed, seemed good enough :-D
