Propounding his “small ball theory” of sports literature, George Plimpton proposed that “the smaller the ball, the more formidable the literature.” Of course he had the relatively small baseball in mind, because its literature is formidable—vast and varied, instructive, often wildly entertaining, and occasionally brilliant. From this bewildering array of baseball books, Ron Kaplan has chosen 501 of the best, making it easier for fans to find just the books to suit them (or to know what they’re missing). From biography, history, fiction, and instruction to books about ballparks, business, and rules, anyone who loves to read about baseball will find in this book a companionable guide, far more fun than a reference work has any right to be.

If baseball is a metaphor for life, the premise of The Single Father's Guide to Life, Cooking, and Baseball is small improvements in diet and lifestyle made consistently over time will have significant, beneficial results for the health and well-being of the single father and his children. Not only does it provide practical and tasty recipes with full color photograph throughout to promote a healthy lifestyle, but it also provides a set of “Single Father's Golden Rules” to encourage a happy, fulfilled, and meaningful life for the single dad. For example, Single Father's Golden Rule #3 is, “In the face of what could potentially be an overwhelming change to your family, maintain your routines and traditions.” Sports quotes and analogies, which appeal to the target audience, effectively reinforce the benefit of the “small improvements” and support the Single Father's Golden Rules, creating a unique combination of parenting, self-help, and cooking into a recipe for happiness.
