Don't be put off by the other review of this book. It's a beautifully presented book, filled with pictures of Angels greats from the early days of modest success, to the glory days of 2002 and up to the present day. This book is a pleasure to read and to look through. Long overdue and well worth the price for all true Angel fans!

Nicely written history of the Anaheim Angels (no, they are not an LA team...they have always lived in the OC). The price here is about twenty dollars cheaper than the stadium price, and it's the exact same book. A worthwhile purchase for a quality coffee table book to share among friends and family.

Nice book with great pictures of all the Angel greats. It really took me back to the good old days even though we didn't win a World Series back then. I would recommend it for any Angel fan that have followed them from the seventies until now.

I am really enjoying this book. Well written and full of information. I like the memorabilia enclosed (tickets for @2.50:,batting order for no hitter, etc) Great selection of photograps.

As a hardcore Angels fan with a deep appreciation for baseball history, I was stoked to hear that the Angels were releasing an official book about their history. The book is pretty to look at, no doubt, but I regret to say that I was pretty disappointed with the overall product.

On the whole, there is lack of in-depth content, and the book definitely appeals more to the casual fan than to someone who is looking to really learn about the team's history. In my opinion, the book focuses too much on Angel successes and doesn't bring enough coverage to the rough times that this franchise surely endured. Sure, it's always nice to hear about the several winning seasons the franchise had, but it probably would be a lot better to read about a complete overall history since this is the team's official history book as they would like to call it.

The numerous interviews with Angel greats every third page or so are also pretty uninteresting. Basically, they are short snippets of the interviewed player praising his teammates or the Angels team on which he played. These snippets get dull pretty quickly. Having already read many of the books written on the Angel franchise, I really didn't learn a whole lot from reading this book.

Overall, it wouldn't be a bad gift for a young Angels fan, or nice eye candy for bookshelves of a hardcore Angels follower. But if you are looking to truly learn something about the Angels franchise, I would recommend looking at the Ross Newhan books on the Angels instead.
