This is a great story. I really enjoyed the author chuckling along to the old war stories - so maybe you need to be a baseball fan and be old to get into the fun of it all.
I also enjoyed the updates on previous editions even when the going got rough. I have read many sad stories but hearing the pain in Jims voice with the loss of his daughter will stay with me forever.
At the end of the book Jim says if you have come this far, and are still listening, you are almost family. I appreciated this thought and felt it was a privledge to be a part of something bigger.
A really great read. A really great story. Read the Southpaw as well.
I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it even more so after I read "Bang the drum slowly". The two stories are not a continuing storyline but contain the same style and characters.
An enjoyable read.
