I know there's more people reading. So how about some responses? We've had comments on Berg that have turned into comments on the book. What are your thoughts on the book? I agree with the comment that it was well-researched, to an extent. I'm always dubious about books that rely primarily on interviews and in this case, the primary individuals who would have been nice to interview - the Berg family - were unable to be interviewed without an Ouija board. Dawidoff did manage to track down a wide range of interviews which I found impressive.
I can't say I enjoyed reading the book. There was so much of the mundane. Berg traveled here and met with this person and ate here. He put his fingers to his lips and said shhh. He visited with this person. He traveled here. And I've already made mention of my skepticism of Berg as a decent book topic. So I didn't like it, even discounting for the fact that I don't think there are many well-written baseball books.
