    I have seen several posts about What book is the best on....

    I think if we can just post the subject, book and author and then have someone clean it up once in a while so we have a running list of books that this forum members recommend. No opinions, no flames just if you liked the book and think others here would then post it, then new members and members who are looking for a good read could check it out...

    Just an idea as I have taken many suggestions here but go to the half price books every week and am picking up more and more baseball books......
    There's an older thread with a long list of baseball bios. I'll try to find it. Since we always get questions about what good books there are, this is a fine idea, Bryan.
