Reviews

". . . Berkow can turn a phrase like an all-star second baseman turning a double play . . . . [a] collection well worth reading."
-Steven V. Roberts, Washington Post

"Ira Berkow has had such a remarkable career, and in both the simplicity and complexities of the anthology of his work, on one 'game,' it comes alive. I find myself smiling, escaping, remembering, so happy to read, jump around--and his writing is never ending. Baseball's Best Ever is blessed with insights and his gift, but it's also kind, which is the indication of the artist he is."
-Dan Klores, award-winning filmmaker and playwright

"Baseball's Best Ever by Ira Berkow is so much fun. Wonderful writing covering a wide gamut of baseball pieces-from Babe Ruth to Sandy Koufax and Willie Mays to Derek Jeter-and with a personal touch to everything. Terrific, terrific stories."
-Marty Lurie, Talking Baseball, KNBR radio San Francisco
