5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent chronicle of the Boston Red Sox 2013 "Improbable Dream" season..., December 20, 2013

For those of us Boston Red Sox fans who are still enjoying the warm glow of our team's victory in the 2013 World Series, "For Boston" is an excellent chronicle of the Red Sox journey not only through the World Series, but the entire 2013 baseball season as well. The superbly written articles chronicle the heartache of the Boston Marathon bombing; the team's inspiring response to the bombing; and the relentless pursuit of "redemption" after the disastrous 2012 season.

Each article is accompanied by several brilliant photos that showcase the team's many players: David Ortiz. Dustin Pedroia, and Jacoby Ellsbury, the grizzled "veterans," each with at least one World Series ring to their name; and the relative newcomers like Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes, Daniel Nava, and Koji Uehara, Stephen Drew, and rookie Xander Bogaerts, all of whom contributed mightily to the team's winning chemistry with their personalities as well as their superb baseball skills.

"For Boston" is an excellent chronicle of the Boston Red Sox 2013 "Improbable Dream" season. Read and enjoy!

This review is from: For Boston: From Worst to First, the Improbable Dream Season of the 2013 Red Sox (Paperback)
Nice photos and season recap but quickly put together and not enough photos from the World Series. Could have been much better.

This review is from: For Boston: From Worst to First, the Improbable Dream Season of the 2013 Red Sox (Paperback)
As an avid Sox fan, I bought "For Boston" as soon as it was available in print. It will not disappoint. It is a comprehensive photo essay of the wonderful 2013 Red Sox season , the playoffs, and the Series, with the best of the Boston Globe's photo coverage. I've purchased several and given then to friends as gifts.

Terrible. The flow made no sense. I expected a lot better product from the Globe. I was terribly disappointed in this "book."

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR ALL RED SOX FANS!, January 13, 2014

This review is from: For Boston: From Worst to First, the Improbable Dream Season of the 2013 Red Sox (Paperback)
A great souvenir of an even greater year for Red Sox fans! Beautifully put together by the Boston Globe, this 128-page full color book is a must. Great full-page photos flawlessly reproduced and lots of interesting articles on all aspects of the Red Sox season by various Globe staffers including Dan Shaughnessy, Bob Ryan and Peter Abraham. A series of capsule reports under the heading "what WAS that?" adds considerably to the enjoyment of this book. There's also a nice liitle section devoted to previous World Series battles with the Cardinals. Can't think how this book, within its price range, could have been any better! After decades and decades of disappointment, to have three World Series and three collectors editions in ten years is pretty unbelievable, so please excuse this fanatical Red Sox fan from down under for going a bit over the top with praise and appreciation for this terrific memento of the past season. Looking forward to another in 2014 or is that just too much to ask for?

2.0 out of 5 stars Light, Breezy and Forgettable, January 12, 2014
For a die hard Red Sox fan the book is still worth it but just barely. Compiled essays primarily from Boston sports writers are mixed with great photos of not only the 2013 season but those of Red Sox yesteryear. The flaw is that the last 10 pages (at least in the Kindle edition), repeat themselves so it gives the appearance that the book was thrown together haphazardly with the only intent of cashing in. Love the insights on Farrell and Uehara though.
