This book has a limited audience, but for those of us who are devout Red Sox fans, it is "a must". This man was a paragon on old fashioned New England "yankee traits" and it is essential to understand what distinguishes a Sox from a Yankees fan: something easy to do after reading about the life of Carlton Fisk. I would not give the book 4 or 5 stars because there is not enough objective "edge" as the author is too enamoured by Fisk. There were two sides to his character, including a dark side which not sufficiently reported upon.
