Publisher Comments:

"I started McCarver's book because I was sure he would teach me something. I finished it as Casey Stengel."--The Cincinnati Enquirer

Tim McCarver, baseball's preeminent analyst, has set down all that he knows about how the game should be played and watched. With his trademark wit and style, McCarver explains the fundamentals and proper mechanics at the level necessary for success in the major leagues.

        Baseball for Brain Surgeons and Other Fans is a gold mine for all fans, brain surgeons or otherwise, and anyone learning how to play or coach the game. (Even major leaguers will pick up some pointers.) After the wonderful 1998 season, America's pastime has never been more popular, and with the deeper knowledge and understanding of baseball that Brain Surgeons provides, any fan will be able to watch it like a pro.

McCADAVER, as I dubbed him, is an idiot and doesn't even know baseball rules, as he demonstrates often on FOX. He also doesn't know when to let a subject go; i.e., he talks tooooooooo much.
ESPN's Joe Morgan and he each thinks he knows it all and that his way is the only way. You'll notice neither has coached or managed in pro ball.
