I just finished The Numbers Game by Alan Schwartz about the history statistics in baseball, and yes I feel even more powerful.
I'm also reading the John Adams Biography, I'm 1/3rd done, it is very good as recommended.
Book 3 of the journey is a easy to read piece on the band Wilco, I just started that.
Book 4 sits by a chair that I occasionally sit in if there's no cat there, it's Ty Cobb the biography by Charles Alexander a history professor at OU and a great deadball era Biographer.
