Kevin Lager just came out with the best review yet in the “I haven’t actually read the book” category. He admitted as much up front.
Still, it didn’t stop him from giving 5 out of 5 (stars? points?) to the cover; two thumbs up for the fact that it was a collaboration; an A+ for the title; a “perfect 10” for the subtitle (despite our clear bias against Canadians); and an “E for Excellent” on the back-of-book copy (“If you’re going to read the back of one book this spring, make it the back of The Baseball Codes”).
Lager’s summation: “You can tell The Baseball Codes is Pulitzer-material without even cracking the spine.”
Thanks, Kevin. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it once you actually open the thing.
