Review roundup, Nov. 16

November 16, 2012 · 0 comments

♦  Bill Jordan at Baseball Reflections posted this on The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown. Upshot: “With the book being built around blurbs, instead of lengthy stories, it is a quick read and would be something that is easy to browse through. One might even call this a good book to read while using the bathroom as it doesn’t take long to complete one of the blunder stories. (2.5/5)”

♦  MLB Reports posted this review on Robert Cohen’s The 50 Greatest Players in New York Yankees History. Upshot: “A great job … in adding another great volume to legacy of the New York Yankees.”

♦  Michael Engle published this review of One Man’s Dream: My Town, My Team, My Time. on KingsofKaufman, a Royals-centric site. Upshot: “There’s nothing transformative about the book. It’s not Jim Bouton‘s Ball Four or a tell-all like Jose Canseco‘s memoirs, but for a Royals fan or baseball fan in Kansas City, there’s enough to take away from it.”
