User Review  - Barnabas Piper - Goodreads

This is a great book. I can see why the old timers hated it when it was released, but it's a fantastic, funny, irreverent look behind the baseball curtain. Every fan should read it. Read full review

Review: Ball Four

User Review  - Dan Ryan - Goodreads

I listened to the audio version of this book, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Bouton cracks himself up in the funny parts, and the tragic parts are just awful. One of the best audio books I've experienced. Read full review
