Included in the New York Times Book Review’s Summer Reading List.
Roger Kahn; Edited and with an Introduction by Bill Dwyre
Praise from the Wall Street Journal:
“Spending a few hours with The Roger Kahn Reader is like a time-machine voyage back to a sports world of authentic heroes, colorful but not obnoxious characters, just causes, smart talk and love of the games. Roger Kahn helped create that world and reanimates it here for our pleasure.”
Marc J. Rosenstein
Review in Publishers Weekly:
“With strong overviews of foundational developments throughout Judaism—the exodus from Egypt, the destruction of the first and second temples, the expulsion of Iberian Jewry, the Holocaust, and the founding of the modern state of Israel—readers will appreciate Rosenstein’s evenhanded treatment.”
Review from Sport in American History:
“Unfortunately, like four years of college, it all goes by so quickly, as Ottaway is an easy writer to read and enjoy.”
Rabbi Shai Held
Praise from Jewish Journal:
“Indeed, the real glory of Held’s book is that he shines a bright light on the ancient text, and he brings out the nuances, interconnections and interpretations that make the Bible come fully alive for the modern reader.”
Reviewed on Brevity:
“As someone whose only real social life is reading books, like Lazar’s, I loved spending time with him while reading this collection. It felt like hanging out with a dear friend—a friend who hums to himself, often digresses, and occasionally shouts frenetic revelations into the early-morning insomniac darkness, but dear nonetheless.”
