I was looking forward to this book but there are many problems. There are too many writers and too many editors and a lack of cohesiveness and many errors. Who is responsible for this mess? We are told Larry Doby was born in 1924 and 2003. Was he reborn? The section on Comiskey Park is "stream of conciousness" without coherence. Too many writers and editors and no one cuts out all the repetition found throughout the text. The Go Go Sox deserve better.

Well researched and well written. Includes a biographical sketch on everyone associated with the '59 White Sox. Highly recommended for all baseball fans. (OK...I confess, I'm biased...I wrote the chapter on Al Smith!)
