3 Nights in August

For the true baseball buff who views each at-bat through a prism of stats, strategy and psychology, there's Buzz Bissinger's 3 Nights in August, narrated by Jeffrey Nordling. Bissinger set out to "excavate deep into the game" and does it by dissecting a three-game series between the Cardinals and the Cubs in August 2003 and by getting "inside the mind" of Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa. Bissinger had unprecedented access to LaRussa, the team and the staff and with it he's put together a grand-slam homer of a book that touches all the bases.
