KUDOS!!! 14 février 2006
Par Sabrina A. Cunningham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It's about time that someone gives the 1919 Cincinnati Reds the respect they deserve. In his well documented book, author, William A. Cook has finally brought to light the fact that the Cincinnati Reds were quite capable of winning the 1919 World Series, without any help from the Chicago White Sox.The inning by inning replay of the series in the book should raise a few historian's eye brows in that Mr. Cook raises some very important questions in regard to propaganda advanced by the media on baseball's most infamous event over the past 87 years.

I highly recommend the book for baseball fans and historians alike, who have a penchant for objectivity. KUDOS to Mr. Cook for his bold insight.

The Real Straight Scoop on the 1919 Series. 13 août 2007
Par David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Will Cook's book on the much publicised 1919 Worls Series is right on the money. More rumors have been spread on this series than all other sporting events. Rotten rumors were flying all over Cincinatti. Cook doesn't question, there is no need to, the many lies, tricks, baloney, and double crosses that occurred before the opening pitch. But, he reveals most of the rumors never transpired onto the playing field. Each team had 12 errors and several shabby plays. Modern computer data, not available in 1919, fully confirm Cook's theory that the Sox were a good team, about even with the two top Reds rivals in the National League. But, for the year 1919 the Reds were a great pitching loaded team. They were much better prepared for a tough series, fully capable of beating the Sox week in and week out of 1919. The Red under ace manager Pat Moran were ready and the Sox were down with sore armed pitchers, poor relief, and low morale.
Will Cook reveals a factual true as possible survey of the series. He covers all the controversial plays using all available data to arrive at a verdict. Also, he lists several "grey areas" in which no present day man can detect the true motive of certain players. Cook plainly states that Sox hero and captain, Hall of Famer Edd Collins, had a miserable series. In the first six games he had 2 hits that produced nothing, all while disgraced Joe Jackson had 8 hits.
Every student of the 1919 series should read this book and then reread it to get the real picture. Then they will understand the truth in Will Cooks premise that its high time the media quits low-rating the 1919 Reds. Will Cook helps the Reds gain full credit for a great series performance.

Fantastic resource 19 février 2006
Par Katheryn White - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Cook provides the first-ever objective look at the events in the 1919 World Series. His research is well done and superbly documented. In doing so he raies a lot of very important questions that historians need to re-examine. I liked the book very much and recommend it and believe that it will set the standard for future books on the 1919 World Series.

Poor Research & Prejudice Produce Poor History 2 mars 2006
Par Phillip Erwin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have read all of the histories of the scandal and this is the poorest book for a novice to read. The author ignores all previous research that does not fit with his view - that Cincinnati would have won the '19 Series. Actually, the great weight of evidence is that all of the games lost by Chicago were deliberately lost by the starting pitchers and others. Instead of examining the well-researched books by Asinof and Luhrs, among others, he attacks a Hollywood movie and presents no original research of his own. Buy a different book!

Could Have Done Without the Author's Personal Opinions 1 décembre 2013
Par Granten Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I bought this book because it was from McFarland Publications, who have put out some great books on baseball and American history. As a historian, I will always appreciate the facts rather than a "based on a true story" movie. And before I read this book, I was one of the millions of people who saw "Eight Men Out" the 1988 film that inspired Cook to write this book. No surprise that the film is full of distortions and leaves a lot of people believing things that are not true. But I hope Cook isn't losing any sleep over this. Because while I'm one of the many who saw the movie, I'm one of the few who will read his book or any book that will tell the true story of the 1919 World Series.

While it's clear that Cook, a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan who also lived in Chicago and became a White Sox fan,has an absolute passion for this subject, it would have been much better if an objective source had written this book. Cook does something I've never seen before: he puts his personal opinions into the text. Usually, personal thoughts are reserved for the introduction and/or afterword of a book. Honestly, I don't even know if it's some kind of written or unwritten rule in nonfiction... I've just never seen it where somebody writes a history book, gives the facts and then says, "I think this..." or "I think that..." By doing this, the book ends up reading like a long internet message board post. And one of these opinions, that baseball commissioner Bud Selig has "a constant disregard and ignorance of baseball history" is something I find to simply not to be true. In 1997, Selig announced that Jackie Robinson's number 42 was to be retired forever by every team. Sixteen years later, it remains the only number so retired. That doesn't sound to me like somebody who doesn't know anything about history. In fact, for Cook to compare Selig to his predecessor Kenesaw Mountain Landis as being at the same level of "integrity and stature" is ridiculous. Under Selig, baseball began a Civil Rights Game to honor the history of the Civil Rights Movement. Landis never even wanted Blacks to play in the majors.

I appreciate that Cook acknowledges the capabilities of the 1919 Reds. But there is no way he nor anyone else can possibly know that the Reds would have won that series. Counterfactual history is a bad place to get caught up in. As for what really happened, I find it kind of funny that Cook so criticizes the 1988 movie which oversimplifies the story to make a single point: cheated out of big money by a skinflint owner, some players on the ballclub decide to cash in by fixing games for gamblers. But Cook makes that exact same point in his book! It makes me wonder what kind of movie he would have made to tell this story to a public that had no knowledge of it.

I can't say that I'm someone passionate about seeing Shoeless Joe Jackson reinstated to the game and admitted to the Hall of Fame. But I will say that I think it was very unfair for these men to be acquitted (under questionable circumstances) in a court of law and then for Landis to decide on his own to make the rule up about a lifetime ban for gambling. How can you ban somebody for breaking a rule that was not in place when they supposedly did the wrongdoing?

Anyway, I gave this book 3/5 stars as "just OK." There are some other subtle things I have issue with about Cook and his book but I'll keep them to myself.
