I like the author's style--he's like a history teacher you wish you had. The modern history left me breathless a few times--the six day war chapter especially. It's hard to believe sometimes that all this history really happened in this tiny country. Here's a quote that sums up the book: "It's the great misfortune of Jerusalem to be both wholly imaginary and wholly real."

Good but not satisfying. Too much was left untold, other than a sentence or two.

Fascinating story of the invention of sugar packets and Sweet n'Low, but at the cost of a family's harmony and conhesiveness.

I'm a huge sports fan but only a casual basketball fan but, even so, I really loved this look at the 1987-1988 NBA season, which the author calls the best season ever.

This entertaining book had a fun, lively focus on four key teams of that era: the Boston Celtics, the L.A. Lakers, the Chicago Bulls, and the Detroit Pistons, as well as the players and styles that made them great, including Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Isaiah Thomas, as well as their supporting casts.

I'll watch an occasional Chicago Bulls game so I'm familiar with them but the look at the Celtics, Lakers, and Pistons was very informative (and the look at the Bulls brought back some memories).

Highly recommended to pro basketball fans.

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.)
