Will, George F.

New York: Macmillan Publishing Company, 1990. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. Good/good. Sigrid Estrada (Jacket Photograph), Andrew M. Newm. 25 cm. ix, [3], 353, [3] pages. Illustrations. Index. Some soiling/creasing to DJ. Some edge soiling. Signed by the author on the half-title. George Frederick Will (born May 4, 1941) is an American conservative political commentator. Will writes regular columns for The Washington Post and provides commentary for NBC News and MSNBC. In 1986, The Wall Street Journal called him "perhaps the most powerful journalist in America", in a league with Walter Lippmann (1889-1974). His numerous awards include the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1977. Often combining factual reporting with conservative commentary, Will's columns are known for their erudite vocabulary, allusions to political philosophers, and frequent references to baseball. Will, a Chicago Cubs fan, has written extensively on baseball, including his best-selling book Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball. He was one of the interview subjects for Ken Burns' PBS documentary series Baseball. Derived from a Kirkus review: Political pundit Will is a baseball buff whose principal claim to fame has been an unrequited passion for the Chicago Cubs. Here, he essays a sort of thinking-man's guide to the national pastime. Will focuses on four real pros: Tony LaRussa (manager, Oakland Athletics); Orel Hershiser (pitcher, Los Angeles Dodgers); Tony Gwynn (outfielder, San Diego Padres); and Cal Ripken, Jr. (shortstop, Baltimore Orioles). The subjects of his profiles, however, serve mainly as departure points for wide-ranging inquiries into base-running, defense, hitting, pitching, stealing (signs as well as bases), and other of baseball's essential skills. The author persuasively rates today's ""physically more impressive"" stars above their storied counterparts of yesteryear. At his best, Will is an informed, frequently astute, student of the diamond.

DJ has some wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. Corners of some pages bumped. George Frederick Will (born May 4, 1941) is an American conservative political commentator. Will writes regular columns for The Washington Post and provides commentary for NBC News and MSNBC. In 1986, The Wall Street Journal called him "perhaps the most powerful journalist in America", in a league with Walter Lippmann (1889-1974). His numerous awards include the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1977. Will won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for "distinguished commentary on a variety of topics" in 1977.[9] Often combining factual reporting with conservative commentary, Will's columns are known for their erudite vocabulary, allusions to political philosophers, and frequent references to baseball. Will has also written two bestselling books on the game of baseball, three books on political philosophy, and has published eleven compilations of his columns for The Washington Post and Newsweek and of various book reviews and lectures. Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball is a New York Times best-selling 1990 book about baseball. It was written by American Pulitzer Prize-winning author George Will, and published by Macmillan Publishers. The book focuses on four successful Major League Baseball figures, three of them players, representing different aspects of baseball: a manager, a pitcher, a hitter, and a fielder. In preparation for Men at Work, Will spent hundreds of hours interviewing four Major League Baseball figures: right fielder Tony Gwynn of the San Diego Padres, manager Tony La Russa of the Oakland Athletics, shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr. of the Baltimore Orioles, and pitcher Orel Hershiser of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He discussed each person's approach to the game of baseball, choosing them because of their success in their roles and their strong work ethics. While researching for Men at Work over a period of three years, Will acquired 11 press passes that offer special locker-room privileges in Major League Baseball stadiums. In the book, Will discusses how each of the four subjects highlighted play, or in the case of La Russa, manage the game of baseball. It also discusses the history of the game, such as how Candy Cummings invented the curveball pitch in 1867. There are also statistics mentioned, as well as anecdotes. Men at Work was published in 1990, a few days following the 32-day-long Major League Baseball lockout. The book has been described as taking a more serious approach to baseball than other books on the same subject. Reviews have complimented Will's discussion on baseball strategy and his approach to current baseball debates. The book was number one on the list of New York Times Non-Fiction Best Sellers for at least nine consecutive weeks immediately after its publication, making it one of the best-selling baseball books since Major League Pitcher Jim Bouton's Ball Four (1970).
