This book is fantastic. It is a photographic history of Fenway and the Sox. One of the things I liked best are the different photos of Fenway and its players throught the years that I havent seen elsewhere E.g: A photo of the ground breaking ceremony, side by side shots of the entrance (1912 and 1991). Ted pitching, the park set up as a football field (for the Patriots) and Boggs looking at a called strike. The text is excellent with lots of historical facts. Now I'll get to the best part. Remember pop-up books as a kid. Well this book has a detailed pop-up model inside. 1 inch=80 feet. It's all there; The Wall, the numbers, the bowling alley,and even the Citgo sign. This book will amaze the Fenway Fan

As a citizen of Red Sox Nation I ordered this book because I wanted to read an indepth history of Fenway Park. This isn't exactly that. There are only fourteen pages of text. The main feature of this book is a pop-up replica of the ballpark itself which truly does make it a clever conversation piece. And among the fourteen pages there are a handful of photos of Fenway Park through the years as well as some statistics such as how seating has changed and game records that were set or broken here. As a coffee table book for BoSox fans this works well. The pop-up model of the park includes Ted Williams' picture on the electronic scoreboard, a full house crowd and of course that infamous Citgo sign. There's even a billboard for the Jimmy Fund and a few other things you'd only recognize as a Sox fan. One could easily pass this around at a party trying to find other details and that's proven to be a lot of fun. Just be aware that if you're looking for a definitive work on Fenway Park and the Red Sox organization this isn't it.
