|Subject:||Take Me Out to the Bookstore!|
I have to say that I have only read four or five chapters thus far, and yet this is the best book I have read in a long, long while. The breadth is both deep and wide: it covers a lot of ground regarding baseball's rules, statistics, history, etc.; and somehow no subject is given short shrift.
The writing is lively--Mr. Adler's love for the game shines through on every page. But here is the best part: if you are a new fan of baseball, or a diehard who remembers the pre-DH days, there is something for you. So far, all the code examples I have tried are correct. I am just not seeing much "first edition"-isms in this book. Again to be fair, I have not read the whole book yet, but what I have read is truly excellent.
Can't wait for opening day!
