It's Really Simple, Overly Sweet, and WAY Overpriced Apr 23, 2007
This "book" consists of a series of nine short essays. The essays are sweet and poignant. However, there's nothing more than you would expect to find in a good local Little League newsletter. If this "book" sold for $2.50 and the proceeds went to a local league, I'd buy it in a second. Be forewarned; it's not worth $7.95!!
