A MUST for the true Dodgers or Giants fan!!
WOW, this was just nothing short of a complete history of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Every Dodger fan should add this to their library. Every Giants, Yankees or just plain baseball fan needs to add this book/audiobook.
Just don't think it is actually the old geezers doing any of the audio...most of them are, well, no longer with us...but included are comments and even several pages of commentary by the all time great players.
The reader is well spoken and carries a nice pace to his reading. It takes a bit to catch on to the style/format of the book itself but once you do it's a smooth listen.
I found this at the perfect time for getting revved up for the baseball season...
While there are not any really adult sections there are a few that younger kids might ask questions about, so if you want your kid to listen be aware a few passages might be a tad off color but nothing horrible and nowhere near as bad as they hear on the playground every day.
With that I recommend it as a gift for your son or daughter too! Probably age 12 and up to really understand enough of the book especially the times of Jackie Robinson.

If you love baseball, definitely read it
It missed being great by a hair, but it was very good. Lots of inside looks into the hearts and minds of legendary players and some very illuminating visits to the Dodger clubhouse, too. It wasn't quite what I expected, but it was good ... written for serious fans of the sport and especially for those of us who grew up with the Bums as their special team.
