1) No color photos.
2) Editorial flaws. For example, even those he is written up in the body of the book Zach Wheat's stats were not included in the stats section. Tell me HOW could you leave out the stats of the greatest Dodger of the early 20th century and possibly one of the greatest Dodgers ever? Answer, "You can't - it's inexcusable."
3) Out of focus photos. The publisher needs to train the copy stand operator - there are too many out of focus photos here for it to be a coincidence! Very amatuerish work indeed.
4) Not exhaustive. Where are the diagrams of the parks? What were the dimensions for Washington Park? How did the uniforms evolve? Why were they called the "Robins" at one point? Where did Dodger blue come from? You won't find the answers here.
Granted, this IS a first edition book. Expect later revisions to be better and more comprehensive.
Until then, this is about the best single book reference on the Dodgers to be found, as flawed as it is! I bought a copy despite my objections.
