Baseball: The Writer’s Game
By Mike Shannon
This book has little value in my opinion because the author interviews baseball writers and they talk about their early life, their early writing career and other things that took place to get them where they are today. It is just a book for self-promotion as one writer promotes another.
This book has been published one other time with 15 interviews and now in order to resell the book he has added two more interviews. The authors do their best to name drop many times to puff up their careers along with personal insights that were gained. Baseball fans will be disappointed as there is no intrinsic value to be garnered in this book. Aspiring writers may find some things to stick in their craw.
Here are the authors that have been interviewed:
Charles C Alexander
John B Holway
Lawrence S. Ritter
My meter tells me this wasn’t very exciting and not one to put on your bookshelf.
