    Pete Rose played baseball with a singular and headfirst abandon that endeared him to fans and peers, even as it riled others--a figure at once magnetic, beloved and polarizing. Rose has more base hits than anyone in history, yet he is not in the Hall of Fame. Twenty-five years ago he was banished from baseball for gambling, then ruled ineligible for Cooperstown; today, the question "Does Pete Rose belong in the Hall of Fame?" has evolved into perhaps the most provocative in sports, a layered, slippery and ever-relevant moral conundrum.

    David says: "Good book, not so good production."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listened to this book in my car during a daily 2 hour commute. The story itself was enjoyable, but the horrendous narration made remaining engaged in the book very difficult when combined with focusing on the road.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The book needs a narrarator with more passion for the story and the ability to pronounce names. From Durocher to Selig to Oester, it was awful how many times names were botched. It truly drowned out a reasonably entertaining book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    See my comments on the story. The narration ruined this book.


    Was Pete Rose worth the listening time?

    If but for the narration, yes.
