I don't know what i really expected but after recieving this book, boy was i disappointed. Firstly, these type of journeys through baseball history should not be in books the size of a CD case. Secondly, the information is amazingly disjointed with no discernable pattern and thirdly the book looks like it's been put together by the folks at the Monty Python Animation Department.

Don't waste your money, there are many books out there that cover the information this one does but in a nicer, more comprehensive way. A 5th graders scrapbook of a recent camping trip would hold your attention more.

This book has fantastic images of the past as it relates to baseball, and it is just the right size! It's a large smaller than a 'cocktail table book' but just as worthy of bring displayed.

For any fan of the game, this book is a delight to peruse, even though it lacked a great deal of direction and substance; there was much notable baseball history missing here. However, in a game so rich in tradition, it's still a very worthy effort from the team of writers.

This is a loving romp through baseball history; although a bit like driving around the country with no map. You'll see a lot of sights, but it's hard to tell exactly where you're going. You've just got to sit back, relax, and take it all in. It's still a nice trip.
