In this loving but unsparing assessment of our oldest American-bred game, best-selling author Susan Jacoby explores the reasons why baseball—a booming business—is losing younger fans to a culture of digital distraction. The question she poses is whether the game can reinvent itself in a society far from its pre–Civil War origins.
Susan Jacoby is the author of eleven previous books, including the New York Times best-seller The Age of American Unreason, The Great Agnostic, and Alger Hiss and the Battle for History. She is a frequent contributor to national publications, including the Times and the Washington Post.
