I found this book at the airport the other day, so far, decent read

I thought it was a good read (I almost considered writing a Totally Biased Book Review), but one odd thing about it is that there are some rather embarrassing factual errors in the "Afterword" chapter (on the 2005 Sox) which any halfway-knowledgeable fan will catch instantly.
Kind of ironic that a guy who did such meticulous research on events that happened one hundred years ago didn't take ten minutes out of his life to verify the accuracy of events that happened a few hundred days ago.
Oh, well. The accounts of the '06 World Series, the players, and the atmosphere of the city at the time made for an interesting read...
