Sports Illustrated Baseball Book is composed of half articles and half photographs of the greats that graced the baseball fields. This book called '', Sports Illustrated The Baseball Book'', by Sports Illustrated is a really challenging book. It was really challenging because like their was a lot of words in the story that I really didn't know how to say. Also the words were small so it was hard to read. This story was telling you about all the baseball history of baseball.

Since it first began, Sports Illustrated has had the best sports writing in a magazine. So it is no surprise that this is a good book. I could have gladly skipped the article on Barry Bonds, since it was less about him as a baseball player, and more about him as a pain in the butt. Baseball, and sports in general, have produced some of the best American writers - Grantland Rice, Jimmy Cannon and many more. This book is a wonderful sampling of this writing and bring to life some of the magic of baseball when it was a game, and as it became a business.

Talk about Sports Illustrated the Baseball Book


Malak
If you're knowledgeable about the history of baseball, this book with reward you with hundreds of large-scale, gorgeous images from all eras of the game.

However, the book provides very little context for the photographs. While it includes a few random essays sprinkled throughout, The Baseball Book is 95% photos with short captions.

Not great for a young kid just learning about baseball on his own, but fantastic for a father to share with his kids.

My nine year old loves baseball and is the kind of kid who likes to pore over books that are loaded with facts and pictures. He got this for his birthday and took to it immediately. The Sports Illustrated people have tried to put the baseball facts into a larger pop cultural context, so the young reader learns, for instance, who won the World Series in 1953 and what famous people were born that year.

A lot of the pictures I've never seen before, so it's a fun book for this non-young reader as well.

"A spectacular celebration of professional football that will be treasured by fans of America's Game. With unforgettable photographs and award-winning writing and a best-seller, this lavish coffee-table volume brings to life the bone-rattling action of NFL football and the extraordinary athletes who have made it America's true national pastime. In 86 oversized pages, it commemorates the dynasties and the dominating players, the crucial plays and classic games, the personalities and performances that fill the NFL ."

"With unforgettable photographs...this lavish coffee-table volume..."

There are no photos whatsoever. Only black & white pencil drawings, and diagrams which occasionally include a blue arrow or letter or number or word. Chapter titles are in blue, one of the black & white pencil illustrations has blue overlay printed (uniform color). "Lavish" is not how to describe this book.

"brings to life the bone-rattling action of NFL football and the extraordinary athletes who have made it America's true national pastime...it commemorates the dynasties and the dominating players, the crucial plays and classic games, the personalities and performances that fill the NFL..."

This book is about how to watch and understand football, with diagrams on what offensive and defensive alignments are and how plays are run. It also contains a couple of sections written by Y.A. Tittle, Raymond Berry and Lou Groza, with tips on how to play football. It is a "how-to" book; it "commemorates" nothing and says nothing of "classic games" or "personalities and performances".

Here is an excerpt from the book:

"The details are important in pro ball. Things like wearing a strip of towel around your waist on a hot day so the sweat won't run down into your hands and make them slippery." (from page 39)

"this lavish coffee-table volume...86 oversized pages"

The book measures 8 1/4" x 5 1/2". Not oversized, nor a coffee table book, by any means.

The description does have the year and number of pages correct, but that's about all.

For me I love history and to see the history of America's past time in photos is fantastic. And if you like stats it has all the leaders broken down by decade and also brief summaries of what was part of the general culture in whatever decade it was, such as the 50s for example, and what well known celebrities were born or died then.

This is a great book to own for any baseball fan. There is a lot of info, stories and pictures about the game of baseball and the great players that have played the game. I love that the book is broken down decade by decade and have all-decade teams. I would recommend this book to any baseball fan. A must have for the baseball junkie.

Got this for my son who was quite a good college baseball player. Now that he has a son he can share the photos and stories of the history of the game with him.

wonderful book
Not only is my son a sports nut but he's a weekend radio sport broadcaster. He loved this book for all of the obscure and not-so-obscure facts and figures
