Reviews - What do customers think about Talking Baseball Amongst Friends?

A homerun!  Jun 2, 2006
What a great achievement! This book is perfect for anyone, any age. Avid fans or casual readers will enjoy this first-person joy ride with Steve. Chocked full of insights from every walk of baseball life-players, fans, managers and coaches, media-he covers it all. You gotta read this book!
Like a catch on a summer day...  May 31, 2006
Talking Baseball Amongst Friends is a fascinating book - part inspiration, part dedication, part good old-fashioned fun. Steve Sullivan has taken an amazing amount of stories from some of the biggest names in baseball today and compiled them for his audiences' reading pleasure. However, this book goes beyond the big names in baseball to some of the names that each of us should get to know; players who never got a chance to step foot on MLB soil, players like Hank Presswood and Charles Johnson. Talking Baseball Amongst Friends takes us to a place where the dreams and memories of the baseball fan in each of us have a voice. It doesn't matter that 99.9% of us will never step foot on a MLB field; this book reminds us that the athletes we watch, the athletes we cheer and chide, are human beings who have dreams, memories, and a desire to hit the ball, catch the ball, and throw the ball. As a high school teacher, I hope to introduce this book to my students as they discover the beauty of non-fiction writing. Often kids and adults believe that non-fiction is dull and hard to read. Steve Sullivan has written a book which reads to each of us, we need only turn the pages.
Steve's aunt   May 29, 2006
This is a great book. I am not particularly interested in baseball. I read the book because my nephew wrote it; and I love it. It is a well writen colection of human interest stories about baseball. But it is also about American society and shared values. It could be used in a sociological study of common values in American culture. It is also a great book for a psychologist to give to patients to read and discuss. I would use it in a group therapy session to discus the topics of team work, in-group- out-group dynamics helping people realize how they fit into the dominant culture.
It is a good choice for a book club.
This is a book has appeal to most people. I think it will catch on and become a best seller.
