First time I've ever thought this about a baseball book, I think-- certainly a baseball book written by a former player-- retired outfielder Shawn Green's new book is worth reading even if you couldn't care less about baseball. I mean, you'll enjoy it more if you like baseball and know who he is, and maybe I'm overstating things, but I really do think it's good enough that it doesn't even matter. He writes about struggling to find balance and peace in the act of hitting a baseball, about to trying to balance his work life and personal life, about letting go of his ego and the mental traps keeping him from consistent success. It's certainly as revealing of a professional athlete's personality and thought process as any baseball book I've read, and entirely absent all of the standard athlete autobiography tropes. Recommended.
