Great book, not so great reading
Eig did great work writing this book, and I enjoyed it a great deal. I just wish that the reader and recording engineer had been baseball fans. The mispronunciation of the names of prominent baseball figures is truly annoying. And it isn't just people from 1947. Many of those guys are still around the game today. Anyone acquainted with Major League Baseball would have been a vast improvement.
I would gladly purchase another copy of this audio book, if it were redone with a fan doing the reading.
