'Baseball' Pops Up
This week's best-sellers
Despite being a big, heavy tome with a $60 price tag, Baseball, by Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns, continues to inch up the best-seller list. The print version of the PBS miniseries directed by Burns, Baseball plows through the history of the game with steady diligence and beautiful photographs. Its essays, by The New Yorker‘s Roger Angell, historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, and others, tell readers this is more than just another set of fans’ notes.
