    Rickey Robinson PDF #180; #241; ePUB franzbielmeierde rickey mobile, robinson epub, Rickey Robinson eBookIf this were a stand alone book I would have rated it much higher The fact is however there is very little new in this book that Mr Kahn hasn't previously provided in The Boys of Summer or The Era 1947 1957Or for that matter in Charles Einstein's wonderful work Willies Times It is a very interesting story and Kahn makes himself a primary character in this historical perspective of baseball's most revolutionary era The problem is it has been told before and frankly it is told several times within this book itself The writing is very repetitious and Kahn is extremely defensive in his own version of the historic signing of R

    Rickey Robinson PDF #180; #241; ePUB franzbielmeierde rickey mobile, robinson epub, Rickey Robinson eBookTime for Roger Kahn to shut down the old typewriter The problem is not that the book isn't interesting it is despite consistent repetition and a good amount of rehashing old material But the name calling is excessive and just isn't a good look since most of the people that Kahn attacks are long gone

    Rickey Robinson PDF #180; #241; ePUB franzbielmeierde rickey mobile, robinson epub, Rickey Robinson eBookIn the beginning I was intrigued by Mr Kahn's straightforward writing style and 'insider' knowledge of the story of Rickey Robinson And while there were some insights shared throughout the book it suffered from two main weaknesses in my opinion1 Confusing chronology Kahn repeats stories multiple times and tells them using slightly different details each time He also doesn't follow the arc of the chronological timeline While that can work in a narrator's favor it must be handled deftly He does not pull it off here 2 Namedropping Mr Kahn constantly namedrops and mentions the places where he met different people related to this story It doesn't add any cache to the narrative for me it smacked
