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.
Adams Bio is a good piece of work.
If you like it, and enjoy quality works about that era, I'd also recommend a book by Richard Brookheiser - Gentlemen Revolutionary: Gouverneur Morris, the Rake who wrote the Constitution.
Excellent work about a important but little known figure in that period. Quite the character as well, a womanizer with a wooden leg. Vital in NY history as well.
Recieved it for Christmas last year, read it quickly. Only been out for a year or so.
I'm still polishing off "Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer"
Debating what I should move onto next.
