By Thomas L. Magness on October 27, 2004
Although it is not as well organized a book as Ross Newhan's earlier book, this volume brings the story of this often overlooked and tragically plagued franchise up to date, including the magical 2002 World Championship season. Steve Bisheff does bring in stories about the earlier Angels, whom I remember fondly, although he concentrates on the contemporary stars. Both Newhan's and Bisheff's books should be read in conjunction if you want a good picture of the adventures of this team, of whom I have been a fan since its beginning. GO ANGELS!!!

A horrible book from a great reporter and writer. Steve mailed it in on this one. Too short to document any meaningful part of the World Series run. Often glosses over huge aspects of the season and parts of its history. This was a disappointment when I just finished it.

THIS IS A BOOK ABOUT THE EARLY HISTORY AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON OF 2002 CONCERNING THE ANAHEIM ANGELS. THE AUTHOR DOES A GREAT JOB DESCRIBING THE EARLY YEARS WITH EMPHASIS ON THE TRAGIC AND DISAPPOINTING EVENTS THIS FRANCHISE HAS ENDURED. FROM THE PLAYOFF LOSES IN 1979, 1982 AND 1986, THIS TEAM HAS ALSO BEEN SNAKE BITTEN WITH THE DEATHS OF LYMAN BOSTOCK AND DONNIE MOORE. AS THE HEALTH OF OWNER GENE AUTRY DETERIORATED, THE TEAM IMPROVED. HE DIED BEFORE HE SAW THE ANGELS WIN THEIR 1ST WORLD SERIES. THE BOOK ALSO COVERS THE ANGELS 2002 SEASON IN DETAIL AND ALSO FOCUSES ON THE MANY PLAYERS WHO HELPED MAKE IT HAPPEN. I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR ALL ANGELS AND BASEBALL FANS.
