I purchased this book for my son who is a baseball fan and was a professional guitar player for many years. He's over 50 and has been an avid Detroit Tigers fan
since he was eight years old. Because we live across the river from Philadelphia, he's also a Phillies fan. When I saw Bernie Williams interviewed on a TV show recently, I thought his book would be the perfect gift for my son. I was very pleased to find it at a reasonable price on the Amazon website. I have not read it, so I cannot give a review on the book itself. But I expect my son will enjoy reading it when I give it to him with his other Christmas gifts. I think he'll be surprised.
He also played baseball from the days of Little League, Babe Ruth, High School, and adult games thereafter. And now he plays basketball weekly with a bunch of guys. And he still plays guitar. So maybe he experiences the "link between musical and athletic performance".

"Rhythms of the Game" is a very inspiring book by the only person ever who could have written it. Bernie Williams, a baseball legend from his 16-year career, is also a very accomplished musician. Retired from baseball, he has returned to his first passion, guitar, performing out on the concert circuit with his band. I've seen his live show and it's awesome! Bernie approaches music with the same humility and discipline that brought him to the height of fame in the field of baseball. He shows us how he thinks about his work. Doing so, he powerfully counters the image of the self-indulgent, out-of-control, highly paid sports figure that has come to dominate the news. This is not a book about being famous. Anyone can enrich any pursuit inspired by Bernie's example. Certain principles govern the arts, sciences, sports and all disciplines. Having achieved excellence in both a sport and an art, Bernie Williams generously imparts wisdom gleaned from his unique life's journey.

Not a conventional sports/baseball book. Really gets into music and similarities with baseball. Info beneficial to aspiring musicians and ballplayers.

We ordered two of these books to give as Christmas presents. Bought them used and they were in PERFECT condition. Delivery time was quick. The book is great! My son is a baseball player who loves music and plays two instruments. He shared this with his music teacher. It's a wonderful comparison of athleticism & musical talent.

I give it 5 stars - It's comparable to the Inner Game of Tennis and the Inner Game of Music.
