Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"There are just two Hall of Famers who really know the Braves road from Boston to Milwaukee to Atlanta - Eddie Mathews and Braves IQ! This book will determine if you can win fourteen-straight division titles or if you will get lost trying to get off I-285. If you're a Braves fan or you know a Braves fan, this is a must-have." - Dr. Keith Gaddie, award-winning broadcast journalist and author of University of Georgia Football: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports

More About the Author

Tucker Elliot is a former high school athletic director, varsity baseball coach, and college professor. He is now a fulltime writer residing in Tampa, FL.

Tucker's ebook The Day Before 9/11 was released in March 2013. A harrowing true story that spans America's first decade in the war on terror, The Day Before 9/11 portrays in riveting detail the sacrifices made by military families serving overseas and the enduring pain that accompanies the tragic loss of life.

Tucker has written two ebooks related to The Day Before 9/11 that will be released by Black Mesa Publishing in November 2014: The Memory of Hope and The Rainy Season.

In April 2012, Tucker's second book on his home town Braves was released. Dale Murphy, one of Tucker's boyhood heroes, wrote the foreword to Atlanta Braves: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports.

In total he has authored or contributed to more than 40 sports related books, including New York Yankees IQ, Major League Baseball IQ, Cincinnati Reds IQ, and Tampa Bay Rays IQ (with MLB pitcher Andy Sonnanstine).

In addition to his books, Tucker is a cowriter for the screenplays "Shedding Baggage" and "The Home Stretch."

His current project is working with former professional baseball player Tony Stevens on his memoir. Stevens gave up a baseball career to join the Marines after 9/11.

Format: Paperback
Thanks to TBS way-back-when, the Atlanta Braves are America's baseball team -- but if you love baseball period, regardless of which team you pull for, this book has something to offer you. It's full of 250 rich questions that tell the story behind the trivia -- lots of history here, from every era of the franchise and all the big names. No matter when you fell in love with the Braves or even if you're a baseball fan who was glad the 14-year run of division titles ended, this is a great book of baseball history and trivia and I highly recommend it.

I love baseball trivia and have read more than my share of baseball trivia books, but this new Braves book is easily the best I've read in a long time. There are several things I liked about it that make it stand out from other trivia type books -- one, it actually gives you more than just questions, it gives you stories and history behind the questions that makes them more relevant; two, it progresses as if you are in a baseball season from chapter one (spring training) all the way through chapter five (October baseball), and the questions get more and more challenging as you go along; and three, it's just plain fun. All my favorite players are here, and many of the best questions / stories were ones I had never heard before. This is not your generic trivia book -- it is well-written, humorous at times, and very thorough with respect to the Braves history. If you are a fan of the game in general or a Braves fan specifically, this is a very entertaining and challenging book I guarantee you will enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Tucker Elliot has done it again (last time it was New York Yankees: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports (Sports by the Numbers)). Another great IQ Sports Series book, this time about the Atlanta Braves. Full of fun facts and interesting trivia, Tucker throws 250 fastballs, curveballs and sliders at you in the form of 5 Chapters of Braves testing questions.

Are you a rookie or the Braves hero?

As always, these books come in the perfect carry size to take and enjoy anywhere. I can think of no better afternoon spent, than in Florida or Arizona, at a spring league game, in the sun, testing your baseball knowledge. I wish I was there and I wish there were more books in the series. Hopefully Tucker Elliot will take on the New York Mets next!

Format: Paperback
From Boston to Milwaukee to their current residence of Atlanta, the Braves franchise is rich in history, and this wonderful trivia book will challenge even the most diehard fan. Written by Tucker Elliot (who also did the New York Yankees version of this test) in a most engaging manner, any fan of the game will enjoy testing their knowledge of Braves baseball.

The regular season is about ready to begin, and I can't think of a better way for any fan to get in the swing of things than grabbing a copy of this entertaining and informative test of "true fandom". You'll love it.
