商品の説明

The definitive narrative history of the Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have won the hearts of generations of fans, even if they haven’t always won those pivotal games. They were America’s most successful baseball club at the turn of the twentieth century, but by the turn of the twenty-first, things had changed. The Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908, and the last time they clinched the National League Pennant was in 1945. Yet the Cubs have some of the most devoted fans in all of sport. As Glenn Stout writes in the introduction, “They are the game’s last unsolved mystery, the final conundrum, a historical enigma, baseball’s oldest story, with an ending that has yet to be written.” The Cubs chronicles the long, rich, counterintuitive history of this team in all its depth, nuance, and color. We catch a rare glimpse of the early days of Chicago baseball in the 1860s and 1870s and witness the magical 1906 season, with its 116 wins, still the most in major league history. Ernie Banks’s legendary career is covered in detail, as are decisive seasons, such as 1969’s heartbreaking loss to the Amazin’ Mets. Sammy Sosa’s sixty-plus home runs are here too — together with later allegations regarding corked bats and steroids. The authors cast an analytical eye on the tumultuous reign of chewing-gum magnate William Wrigley and his son Philip, as well as the Tribune Company's planned sale of the Cubs. And we hear the true story behind the “Curse of the Billy Goat” — what has really “cursed” the Cubs all these years.
A must-have for Cubs fans past and present, The Cubs tells the complete story in a single narrative for the first time since 1945.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7e19abf4) Among the top of more than 125 Cubs books 2007/11/22
投稿者 a reader - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I have more than 125 books on the Cubs, and this certainly ranks among the top three or four. Not only is it an informative and detailed history, but it's readable as well. The pictures alone are just fascinating to browse through and pore over, and it's obvious that a skilled editor oversaw the entire project. A must-have book for any Cubs fan.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7e19ac48) Good, but many facts are wrong 2008/12/10
投稿者 John - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Overall, I thought this was a good book. It gives a good history of the team and the pictures that are used throughout the book are fantastic. Unfortunately, there are quite a few minor factual errors that were made that take away from the experience.

For example, when talking about the Cubs' collapse at the end of the 2004 season, they said Ryan Dempster blew a 3-0 ninth inning lead against the Mets in a game that kick started the collapse. While the blown game and the way in which it was lost is correct, it was LaTroy Hawkins who blew the game, NOT Dempster. In fact, they even said Hawkins had the day off and that was why he was not pitching.

Another example is just one page later when they are describing the Cubs' off-season moves before the 2007 season. They said that the Cubs "re-signed" Mark DeRosa. The problem with that is that DeRosa didn't play for the Cubs in 2006, so they didn't re-sign him, they just signed him as a free agent.

There are other errors like these throughout the book. While they aren't huge errors and don't take away from the overall feel of the book, they are simple factual errors that should not have been made when giving a history of the Cubs, especially considering the relative ease in which the correct facts could be found. If not for these mistakes, I most likely would have given the book five stars.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7e19c09c) Great Gift Idea for Every Cubs Fan 2007/11/21

If you are looking for a great gift for a Sports Fan and better yet Cubs Fan then this is the best book! I bought this for my boyfriend and he loved it! The book contains great history and facts that even I didn't mind reading. The book also looks great on a coffee table and was way cheaper than at Barnes and Noble!

There is much to recommend this book. It is about as thorough a history of the Cubs as I have read, one that gives ample coverage to every era in Cubs' history, even reaching further back than the founding of the National League in 1876, during the era when the White Stockings (the predecessors of the Cubs and not to be confused with the team from Chicago's South Side) toiled in the National Association. Moreover, Glenn Stout, the author, writes in a lively, engaging fashion, weaving in statistics (which, when relevant, as they are in this book, are never boring) with enough interesting anecdotes to keep every Cubs fan satisfied. Stout is willing to share space with a number of other authors, such as Scott Turow and the late Mike Royko, whose essays grace the pages of this book. Finally, a significant number of photographs break up the monotony of the two-column text and provide a sense of presence to the reader.

So, why isn't it a great book? For whatever reason, the author chose not to include any color photographs. I realize that so doing would probably add to the cost of the book. But this being a "coffee table" book, one that is not cheap to begin with, a few dollars more wouldn't have made much difference. Some color photographs would have considerably livened up the presentation.

Finally, a few more charts in the Appendix would have proved useful. While Stout includes a chart that gives the Cubs' record each year, where the team finished in the standings, and the name of the manager for that year, listing the yearly leader in average, homeruns, wins, ERA, etc., would have been a welcomed addition. (Also, for some reason, the Cubs' record for 1876 is missing. For those who want to know, the Cubs finished first in the initial season of the National League with a 52-14 record. Albert Spalding was the manager.)
