I love a good book...
Doc is a refreshing look at the life of one of the greatest young pitchers of all time. I remember his rookie year, the World Series year and I remember the struggles with drugs. I am thankful he took an honest look at himself and presented it in a way that may help others become honest with themselves. Having worked in Substance Abuse Treatment I appreciate how he finally realized that being open and honest made life better. After all, "If you hide nothing, you have nothing to hide."
Having graduated in 1971 this audiobook not only entertained but brought back memories that were long ago forgotten. My school was nearly the same siza as Macon...our uniforms were nearly as shabby...and we had fun playing the game. Sweet gave that gift to his kids just like Rod gave the gift of having fun to us...we wanted to win but relationships were even more important. Take the time to listen to this book...it's a winner.
When I heard John Grisham was writing a baseball book I looked forward to it. I wasn't disappointed. The book kept my attention with the great style of a mystery but also the fun of baseball. I loved the narrator as he brought the story to life.
