Fair and Balanced (to coin a phrase),
This review is from: Tony La Russa: Man on a Mission (Hardcover)This ia a very well-written, well-researched effort on the part of Rob Rains, whose reputation for same is well-deserved. Having been part of a writing team with Rob in the past on Scout.com, I have experienced first-hand how carefully he digs for information and considers all sides of the issues before he puts words to paper (as opposed to my "writing from the gut" method!).
I learned a lot from reading "Man With A Mission", and it makes a terrific counterpoint/companion volume to the earlier book on Tony La Russa, "Three Nights in August".
Love La Russa or hate him, this is a book that no good Cardinal fan - indeed, no good baseball fan - should be without!
