Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
He may be a political columnist and commentator by profession, but George F. Will's true passion is baseball. Men at Work profiles four men whom Will feels are exemplary of the best attributes of their respective positions: San Diego Padres' slugger Tony Gwynn, Baltimore Orioles' shortstop Cal Ripkin, Jr., Oakland As' manager Tony LaRussa, and Los Angeles Dodgers' pitcher Orel Hershiser. Now baseball fans can listen to sportscaster and fellow baseball enthusiast Bob Costas present Will's unique perspective on the game.

Will makes the point that it is not talent alone that makes baseball--and these particular men--so special. Baseball is a sport that demands intellectual energy, logic and--above all--hard work.

Filled with baseball history and anecdotes, Men at Work is a tribute to baseball that will leave you feeling as Will does: "Some men are like mountains, the closer you get to them, the bigger they become."


Review:
In Men at Work, political pundit George Will breaks baseball down, parsing it into essential tasks: hitting, fielding, pitching, and managing. Why do some succeed grandly while others are more apt to whiff? By analyzing the way Tony Gwynn, Cal Ripken, Orel Hershiser, and Tony LaRussa approach the game and do what they do, he finds striking similarities in intelligence, dedication, drive, and desire.
