The Presidents and the Pastime: The History of Baseball and the White House Reviews

    Two of the most American of institutions are the Presidency and the game of baseball. They have been intertwined together for over a century ? from Abraham Lincoln playing ?town ball? to Barack Obama writing ?Go Sox!? in the visitor book at the Baseball Hall of Fame, there ar...

    Awesome book! It was interesting to read about how important baseball was to the Presidents, despite political affiliation. This book reinforced the idea that baseball is America?s pastime! ...

    I love both Presidential and baseball history, so when I received this book, I thought this would be a great merging of two of my interests. But as I read, I swung back and forth between enjoying and trying to slog through this book. What really didn't work for me was the format of how...

    I received a free Kindle copy of The Presidents and the Pastime by Curt Smith courtesy of Net Galley  and University of Nebraska Press, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my fiction book rev...

    Outstanding!!! Curt Smith can sure write baseball!! Wonderfully written. the history of the game is clearly outlined through the presidents. Not just a history lesson in baseball but also in American presidential history. ...

    A near perfect blend of the history of baseball and the White House. ...

    A very good (but long) book about US Presidents and baseball. It was as a great read with lots of great information on how the two live up to each other. ...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Are you interested in the Office of the President in the United States? Are you interested in the sport of baseball? If you answered yes to both of these questions, or even just one of them, then this book is for you. ...

    ...

    When I first saw this title and description I was pretty excited to read it. Politics and baseball go hand in hand, and given Curt Smith's background (writer for Bush 41), this should have been phenomenal. However, much of the book is disjointed. The first third of the book, all the ch...

    ...

    A fascinating and enjoyable -- albeit long-winded -- stroll through two centuries of baseball and presidential history. For you're not just getting stories and anecdotes about the American presidents and their connection with baseball, you're also getting a treatise on the development ...

    A very good (but long) book about US Presidents and baseball. It was as a great read with lots of great information on how the two live up to each other. ...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Are you interested in the Office of the President in the United States? Are you interested in the sport of baseball? If you answered yes to both of these questions, or even just one of them, then this book is for you. ...

    ...

    When I first saw this title and description I was pretty excited to read it. Politics and baseball go hand in hand, and given Curt Smith's background (writer for Bush 41), this should have been phenomenal. However, much of the book is disjointed. The first third of the book, all the ch...

    ...

    A fascinating and enjoyable -- albeit long-winded -- stroll through two centuries of baseball and presidential history. For you're not just getting stories and anecdotes about the American presidents and their connection with baseball, you're also getting a treatise on the development ...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Overall, the Presidents and the Pastime did a terrific job weaving in how baseball affected the White House. I learned so much about each president and how they viewed the sport. However, I will say that the book is really long and might actually contain a bit too much information in i...

    Awesome book! It was interesting to read about how important baseball was to the Presidents, despite political affiliation. This book reinforced the idea that baseball is America?s pastime! ...

    I love both Presidential and baseball history, so when I received this book, I thought this would be a great merging of two of my interests. But as I read, I swung back and forth between enjoying and trying to slog through this book. What really didn't work for me was the format of how...

    I received a free Kindle copy of The Presidents and the Pastime by Curt Smith courtesy of Net Galley  and University of Nebraska Press, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my fiction book rev...

    Outstanding!!! Curt Smith can sure write baseball!! Wonderfully written. the history of the game is clearly outlined through the presidents. Not just a history lesson in baseball but also in American presidential history. ...

    A near perfect blend of the history of baseball and the White House. ...

    A very good (but long) book about US Presidents and baseball. It was as a great read with lots of great information on how the two live up to each other. ...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Are you interested in the Office of the President in the United States? Are you interested in the sport of baseball? If you answered yes to both of these questions, or even just one of them, then this book is for you. ...

    ...

    When I first saw this title and description I was pretty excited to read it. Politics and baseball go hand in hand, and given Curt Smith's background (writer for Bush 41), this should have been phenomenal. However, much of the book is disjointed. The first third of the book, all the ch...

    ...

    A fascinating and enjoyable -- albeit long-winded -- stroll through two centuries of baseball and presidential history. For you're not just getting stories and anecdotes about the American presidents and their connection with baseball, you're also getting a treatise on the development ...

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Overall, the Presidents and the Pastime did a terrific job weaving in how baseball affected the White House. I learned so much about each president and how they viewed the sport. However, I will say that the book is really long and might actually contain a bit too much information in i...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Are you interested in the Office of the President in the United States? Are you interested in the sport of baseball? If you answered yes to both of these questions, or even just one of them, then this book is for you. ...

    When I first saw this title and description I was pretty excited to read it. Politics and baseball go hand in hand, and given Curt Smith's background (writer for Bush 41), this should have been phenomenal. However, much of the book is disjointed. The first third of the book, all the ch...

    A fascinating and enjoyable -- albeit long-winded -- stroll through two centuries of baseball and presidential history. For you're not just getting stories and anecdotes about the American presidents and their connection with baseball, you're also getting a treatise on the development ...

    Two of the most American of institutions are the Presidency and the game of baseball. They have been intertwined together for over a century ? from Abraham Lincoln playing ?town ball? to Barack Obama writing ?Go Sox!? in the visitor book at the Baseball Hall of Fame, there ar...

    Awesome book! It was interesting to read about how important baseball was to the Presidents, despite political affiliation. This book reinforced the idea that baseball is America?s pastime! ...

    I love both Presidential and baseball history, so when I received this book, I thought this would be a great merging of two of my interests. But as I read, I swung back and forth between enjoying and trying to slog through this book. What really didn't work for me was the format of how...

    Outstanding!!! Curt Smith can sure write baseball!! Wonderfully written. the history of the game is clearly outlined through the presidents. Not just a history lesson in baseball but also in American presidential history. ...
