There's something fun about reading a history book that itself feels a bit historic. As great as all the new books are, some of the old ones make you feel somehow more connected to your subject matter. And point well taken on the brevity front. Did the new Willie Mays bio *need* to be 600 pages long? Probably not.

Ditto, probably not. I enjoy a good, dense read from time to time, and some subjects merit many pages. Still, it's refreshing to come upon a slim volume, especially when immersed in a ton of baseball books!
