KIRKUS REVIEW

There's not much to say about this one. It's a playback of all the playoffs from 1903 through 1966 in about five to seven pages each, with a listing of game scores and dates preceding and a leading hitter, winning pitcher itemization at the close. Now, the Frederick Lieb The Story of the World Series which appeared in the late '40's and has been revised as recently as 1964, gives an approximate 50% increase in coverage, much of which is spent in filling out the score card with livelier material on the players who are not much more identifiable here than the numbers on their uniforms. As such, this doesn't add up to much more than a few scratch singles and the Lieb book is still the one to buy for the men and the boys.
