The Wall Street Journal published this piece on The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams (pay wall). And although Bruce Weber wrote this review for the Dec. 5 edition of The New York Times, another one appeared in the Sunday Times book section.

Here’s an AP critique of The Kid that’s making the rounds.
Stepping away from Williams, Bluebird Banter, a Toronto Blue Jays “imprint” under the auspices of the Baseball Nation banner, posted this review of Paul Dickson’s award-winning Bill Veeck: Baseball’s Greatest Maverick.
