Reading this book was like taking a walk down memory lane While the book was entirely through Hrbek s eyes and I certainly got insight than I had when I was a little girl listening to games it brought back memories The writing is a very casual style and as a result it made me laugh multiple times Sometimes it jumps through time and back but it s or less laid out in a logical orderI ve gotta say that a non Twins fan might not find it that interesting and those who are Twins fans who don t remember the 80s might not like it uite as well either All in all I loved it but it s definitely not for everyone
