Revue de presse

“A rich concoction of narrative, essays, and photos [that] dazzles the eye . . . In so many ways you are reminded that rooting for baseball is like breathing.” —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

“Stirring and reflective . . . A beautiful book that stands on its own in any league.” —David E. Jones, Chicago Tribune

“Glorious nuggets are set amid the clear, warm narrative and hundreds of classic images . . . Highest marks for browseability, but the true reward comes from the longer essays by folks still smitten by the game.” —Jerry Shriver, USA Today

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Première phrase
One summer afternoon in 1839, at Cooperstown, on the shore of Otsego Lake in upstate New York, the boys of the Otsego Academy were playing a game of town ball against Green's Select School. Lire la première page

The definitive book on baseball history. 13 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've read Ward & Burns' book twice. I could look at the historic photos for hours. It is NOT filled with stats, batting averages, or on-base percentages. I was amazed at the true origins of my favorite sport. The quotes are thought provoking and it takes me down memory lane each time I pick it up. If you want to smell the green grass on a summer afternoon, hear the crack of a wooden bat smothered by the roar of the crowd or wipe the dirt from your uniform after you slide into second, then read Baseball:An Illustrated History.

Blockbuster 12 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A tour de force of a book to accompany the PBS video series. This book is one of the best to examine the history of baseball and its impact on America and the American people. Highlights include the coverage of Jackie Robinson and the Negro Legues, particularly the interviews with Buck O'Neil (who should be in Baseball's Hall of Fame). The only disappointment was that it was a bit short on information about Mickey Mantle. Still, this is a major work that belongs on the coffee table of baseball lovers everywhere.

Huh? This is a joke right? 11 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I must respectfully disagree with the following on-line review:
"Yes, Booklist, there is a MUCH better volume on baseball than this one and (in particular) the Baseball Encyclopedia. It is Total Baseball!!! For that matter, I found the books "Ball Clubs" and "Baseball Uniforms of the Twentieth Century" to be better books. Nevertheless, this book is still a good one. It's just not THE greatest. . ."
I am familiar with these books and am stunned with this perspective. These books are great if you're interested in dry and boring facts and figures. They read like history text books.
The strength of this book is that is it about people. Their feelings, their passions, their loves, their hates, their strength, weaknesses, histories, successes, and failings. Oh, and by the way, all these people also happen to love and play baseball.
The Ward/Burns is unique in that it reads like a novel not another boring collection of jock stories with stats and pictures pasted here and there.
Case in point. I always thought that Babe Ruth was greatly over rated as a player until I read this book. Now I understand why he is the greatest baseball player to ever lived and why he ever shall be so.
I also finally understood why my intense primal hatred of the Giants and Yankees. I now understand that I am firmly in the tradition of the Dodger faithful from time immortal. In honoring the traditions of the game - like this one - I honor every player baseball fan and player who has ever loved the game as I do. I too am part of the baseball story. I am part of the ongoing saga.
If stats and boring facts are your thing then by all means pass on this book. However, if you love people and love life this book will make your heart sing, break, quiver, and fly like a Mark McGwire home run or a Wally Moon moonshot.

Adding depth and detail to the PBS documentary "Baseball" 2 avril 2001
Par Lawrance Bernabo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"Baseball: An Illustrated History" is the companion volume to Ken Burns' PBS documentary. The narrative, written by Geoffrey C. Ward, is based on the documentary filmscript by Ward and Burns. What this means in practical terms is that everything you hear and a lot of what you see in the celebrated series is in this book, plus a lot more. Each chapter/inning ends with an essay, such as Bill James on "Stats," Doris Kearns Goodwin on being a "Fan," George F. Will on "Fifties Baseball" and Gerald Early on "Baseball and African American Life." There is also an interview with Buck O'Neil, who emerged from "Baseball" as the game's greatest living good will ambassador. What you will appreciate the most are the little touches: when talking about the dominance of the Yankees in the 1950's we get a full page of choice quotes presenting "The Wisdom of Casey Stengel...and Yogi Berra." There are ads featuring Babe Ruth, pictures of old tobacco cards, the complete "Casey at the Bat," and dozens of other little gems sprinkled throughout the book. As opening day approaches each year my annual rite of spring is to watch "Baseball," and I always take out this companion volume and leaf through it as I watch a century of baseball history. This volume can stand on its own, which might be the single best testament to how good of a baseball book it happens to be.

A great book about a great game 23 avril 2000
Par Michael Delaware - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book could always have more added to it over the ages, and one could always say 'What about... Why wasn't that included in the book?', but nonetheless this book is a treasure. I dearly loved every page I turned and every paragraph I read. It is loaded with photos of a great many heros of the game, and enlightening backgound and stories. It obviously was a great effort to put this book together, and I consider it a worthy tribute to the subject. Baseball is a sport of emotion and devotion. It has grown with America, and therefore is an integral part of our nation's soul. More can always be told about history of the game, and more should be told, but this is a wonderful presentation. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
