Goold's work as a Cardinals beat reporter is well-known and deservedly acclaimed, well-considered and informed and also witty to boot. His take at 100 points of Cardinals history and the Nation comes out in succinctly written, short articles that you can flip through at your leisure or enjoy reading straight through as a book in its own right. No question this is a must-have for any Cardinals fan's bookshelf and a true treasure of baseball writing.

Since I have been a Cardinal fan since the late 1940s, most of it I remembered. However, it is good to give this to my grandkids so they can share my childhood memories.

A great little book to carry along to doctor office, waiting for one's plane to board, etc. when one only has a short time to read some short pieces on Cardinal history, little known Redbird tales, etc.

I am a diehard baseball fan, but more importantly, I am a diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan. This book has taught me all I need to know about why my team is the greatest MLB team, and has only furthered my love for the Birds on the Bat. I still reread it on occasion to revisit fun facts and stories about the Cardinals. There's so much history to my team, and I'm so grateful that I get to be a part of it when I read up on it. All in all, a great book for Cards fans and a happy way to spend my evenings when I have nothing else to do.

I was looking for a gift for a cardinal fan who has everything. This was it! Once he saw it was written by Goold, he knew it was legit.

There is no better read on the St. Louis Cardinals than Derrick Goold. I read every article of his I can from the Post-Dispatch and this book is simply an extension of his insightful and engaging writing style. I hope Goold some day goes on to receive a Spink, because those of us who follow the Cardinals know how spoiled we are.
