This is another book that does not fit into my “short read” category because it has 513 pages. However, it is actually a collection of 32 articles from The New Yorker (on average, well within my definition of a short read). Baseball is on the cover, but there are a lot of stories about other sports. While sports is the theme, the articles are really about life. The stories span many generations of writers – Ring Lardner to Malcolm Gladwell.
This is an easy book to jump around in, so you can start and finish an article if you have a little down time. Get more info on Amazon.
I rate my books as either YES (I will read again) or NO (I will not read again). This gets a rating of YES.
