Description du produit

Revue de presse

“A classic that may even stand up as the best basebal book of the ‘90s.” (Chicago Tribune)

“All fans will be in Will’s thrall and in his debt.” (New York Times Book Review)

Présentation de l'éditeur

In his classic tribute to America's pastime—now with a new introduction—political commentator, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and lifelong sports enthusiast George F. Will travels from the baseball field to the dugout to the locker room to get to the root of the game we all love. He breaks down the sport to its four basic components, managing, pitching, hitting, and fielding, and analyzes the way four of its notables, manager Tony La Russa, pitcher Orel Hershiser, outfielder Tony Gwynn, and shortstop Cal Ripken Jr., approach the game. One of the most acclaimed sports books ever written, Men at Work is a revelatory, and often surprising, study of professional baseball.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A dated tome that wanders. 4 juin 2014
Par Catmom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Descartes. Dizzy Dean. The 1952 musical "The Pajama Game." Ray Kroc. William James. Pete Maravich. Pericles. John Updike. This is just a sampling of cultural references from the last 5 pages of "Men at Work The Craft of Baseball." The beginning and middle of the book are equally replete with similar high-brow references. If you are looking for a book of pure baseball craftsmanship, statistics and history, you'll find some of that, too. The problem is ferreting out the relative information from the clutter. This book is now 25-years old so, yes, it is dated. It has history, which Will claims is essential to the understanding of the game, but the history often overpowers the point Will is trying to make. The book wanders aimlessly at times, too. So much more could have been accomplished with a lot fewer words.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Outdated, But Fascinating Nevertheless 13 janvier 2011
Par zorba - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This somewhat outdated book (written in late '80s) is an ambitious compendium of the skills employed by some of the best players and managers of the game. Through the eyes of Tony LaRussa, Orel Hershiser, Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr., Will fees us a Herculean amount of "inside baseball." Perhaps the boatload of statistics and anecdotes are a little too weighty, but Will leavens it with his wit and his solid journalism. Maybe a good baseball fan doesn't need to know all that Will gives us. But as a former baseball fanatic who lost interest for decades, I found it very enjoyable to take a refresher course in the ins and outs of our national pastime and be reminded why I love the game so much. A solid, notable baseball book by a devoted fan.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 For baseball nuts with a knowledge of past players 19 août 2015

Purchase this on my Kindle at the recommendation of a friend over a year ago, and I haven't yet finished it. It is an interesting book, but just not enough to hold my attention. I do plan on finishing it someday, and fortunately it is a book that you don't lose much by putting it on the shelf and coming back to it later.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Pre-Moneyball 28 février 2009
Par Scott A Kallick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
George Will was always thought of a Conservative think tank columnist until he wrote a book on baseball. To his credit, his approach is, if not unique, then refreshing. He takes a micro-look at baseball, while focussing on some of the bright lights of the era of the late 1980's and early 1990's. Tony LaRussa from a managing perspective, Tony Gwynn from a hitting perspective, Cal Ripken, from fielding and Orel Hershiser from pitching.

Will looks at the day to day preparation of each of these athletes, and how they approach their sport 162 days a year.

He has chosen fine models for his investigation. Gwynn had a cerebral and focussed hitting approach that was so thoughtful, and so advanced, that he could have come from several decades in the future. Ripken set a standard for high level consistency that may never be challenged. And Hershiser, like Ron Guidry before him, may never be a Hall of Famer, but soared to heights for a few a seasons that few have ascended.

Tony LaRussa, as of this writing is still an active manager, and is still in the elite of baseball dugout management.

This is a highbrow look at professional baseball, and is a precursor to Michael Lewis' excellent book, "Moneyball."

Will has a passion for baseball, and I am glad he shared this book. It is a highly worthwhile read.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Once a great book but now dated 21 juillet 2016

Once a great book but now dated. Written around 1990. The best thing is it shows you the difference between the game now and the game then. Orel Herschiser pitched 340 innings in 1990 (I think it was '90) according to Will and no one ever mentioned pitch ccounts, or innings limits. Nowadays pitchers are done at 100 pitches and 200 innings
