    Could have used that info a week ago. Loved the book though, good times.

  2. Andrew says:

    I love the new cover. Kudos to whoever designed it.

  3. Kyle says:

    Nice, but this book is definitely one of those that I’ve enjoyed enough to justify a hardback. It’s on the must list with Moneyball, Clemente, Sandy Koufax: A Lefty’s Legacy, and Built to Win.

    Perhaps for your international readers, you could look into whether it’s offered on or I’ll look it up when I get home, but there must be international readers like me…right?
