Five notable books on the World Series

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on the World Series:
Eight Men Out
by Eliot Asinof

Gambling and baseball make an infamously potent combination. Eliot Asinof gives the subject a close and compelling study in this chronicle of the oddsmakers, owners, and players (both crafty and clueless) involved in baseball's most shattering scandal: the throwing of the 1919 World Series by the heavily favored Chicago White Sox -- known to posterity as the Black Sox.
Read about another book on the list.
