My longtime friend and former San Jose Mercury News and (later) colleague Jim Street has a new book out looking back at life from the press box. My colleague and blogger TR Sullivan just reviewed it for and for our official Books Blog. First, I want to make sure you see the review, so reblogging it here. Second, I want to make sure you know about our books blog. We launched it not just for reviews, but also for YOUR reviews. If you want to review any baseball book on your Blog, please just leave a comment here with the Permalink, and we may excerpt the top of the post on our books blog and reviewer name with link to the full review, as we did with this one. Happy reading and reviewing!
