This is a VERY detailed book on how baseball works. Part science, part history, this book gives you all the information that you need to know about how to play the game. I would have liked had flipped the last two pages (how the game is played) flipped to the front of the book but that is a minor issue. Players such as Barry Bonds are mentioned in the book but the steriod issue is addressed and how Barry's home run chase can be used as a teaching tool. That alone is impressive. ( )
