    One thought on “Red Sox Nation: An Unexpurgated History of the Boston Red Sox”

    1. People laugh when I say that I have read this, but I am not sorry that I did My husband is a devoted Red Sox fan To understand that loyalty, started when he was just a very young boy with his father and brother, is to understand history as well Babe Ruth to the crazy curse it s a good sports book with a great deal of history as well A wonderful gift for men and women who love the game long as they aren t Yankees fans HA

    2. Oh, my stars, fellow readersis was a LONG audiobook, but if you re a Red Sox fan as if anyone else would pick it up , it s a treasure Think Ken Burns ish, except without the charming music It took me over a year to get through, but that s only because I listened to Red Sox games from April October in the middle.

    3. Perhaps its the style of American sports writing or perhaps i m not the Red Sox fan I thought I was but this book was really boring I live in the UK but started watching Red Sox games on TV and my PC after a trip to New England in 07 I bought this book shortly after, keen to learn all about this sports team I really wish I hadn tThe Red Sox are an interesting team with an interesting history but this book was not written for people who know nothing about baseball, in fact this book assumes an al [...]

    4. I wish I had read the older edition of this book The first 80% is great It s full of entertaining and enlightening quotes from the eminent Ted Williams and the eminently quotable Bill Lee It doesn t shy away from the dark times in the teams history or Boston s persistent racism Gollenbock is a terrible writer, and the less he writes, the better Unfortunately, the newer chapters post sale are less oral history and history history I don t need blow by blow recaps of each game of the 2003 ALCS I r [...]

    5. Funny thing about this bookI had read it before After reading at least a half dozen Red Sox books, things start to blur together This book has a unique style of incorporating thoughts from people who may have a connection to the time the author is writing about About halfway through the book, I went to my bookshelf, and there it was under the original name The new version picks up where the other left off and takes you through the new ownership and the 2004 World Series Interesting thing is that [...]

    6. Interesting look at the history of the Red Sox from the late 1800s, when they were the Boston Pilgrams, to the current 2004 World Series Champion Red Sox It really gave me an appreciation for the current management team who really cares about baseball, the loyal Red Sox fan base and keeping the team competitive When you read the history of all the bad management that has preceded the current team it makes you wonder how they EVER won a championship from the owner who sold Babe Ruth to pay for hi [...]

    8. One of the most extensive records of the Red Sox I enjoyed both the historical aspect and the commentary involved A must read for all Red Sox fans.
