Five top books on the World Series

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on the World Series:
Autumn Glory
by Louis P. Masur

The first World Series between the Pittsburg Pirates and the Boston Americans in 1903 revitalized the sport and showcased some of the storylines that would make the contest a perennial source of entertainment for the next century and beyond: established stars failed to perform, unknowns stole the show, and umpires barely escaped with their lives. Historian Louis P. Masur's dramatic retelling makes you feel like you're cheering in the stands. Cracker Jack not included.
