The 3000 hit club was originally released in 2000 and updated in 2011 to include the newest members of the 3000 hit club.
I liked the writing style crisp and to the point. Author Fred McMane has done a good job of presenting a short synopsis of each of the players childhoods and careers that I liked a lot. Each player bio is eight or nine pages in length on average. The bio length worked for me because I was already have a good knowledge of each of the players. For the reader that isn't as familiar with the players this will only wet their appetite to go read a full biography of the player. The book goes in order of career hits from Pete Rose 4256 to Roberto Clemente at 3000 hits which makes total sense.
One of the things i liked about the book is that the players that were still playing and in the first book having reached 3000 hits and active players still playing at the time the first 3000 hit club was released got an updated bio.
In the Kindle version in the table of contents there are links to each of the player chapters which is nice.
This is a quick read. For the person who has read or is familiar with the players stories or has read the first 300 hit club book this is about a 2 star book. For the person looking to get familiar with these players it's about a 4 star book so I split the difference at 3 stars.
