I have never played a video game and am over 60. I really wanted to like this,but could not get past two hours. I have never been less engaged by a book. Must be me.
Cannot be as eloquent as the first reviewer,but agree with the conclusion. One of the best ever.
Captured from the first chapter. Great baseball insights. I do not gamble but the complexity of the analysis had many applications.
A bland repetitive look at what would seem to be an interesting story. Could not finish.
Worse than terrible. The first book I have erased from my library. By the way, I love baseball.
Along with "Tears of Darkness,"a nuanced yet straight forward look at great American heroes. Not to be missed.
Mr. DeMille wrote one third of a book and rambled to an extremely boring conclusion.
I have delighted in the previous works of this author but.... this book is a snooze. I literally forwarded through half the book or more and missed nothing. Much of the book is a rehash of the narrative of The Gold Coast[a book I thought I loved until I heard it retold]. Having listened to all of Demille's previous books, I was stunned at how bad this was.
I rely on the point of view of others,but in this case, I am in the minority. I found the first half of the book at least interesting,the rest incomprehensible.
