    We read this book aloud as we drove to the A’s games or traveled so it took us awhile to finish it. For an A’s fan it was great. I especially loved the interviews and the history of Ken Korach and Susan Slusser with the team. A’s fans should read it or people Interested in sports broadcasting. It was a very interesting read! Now, to figure out how to get Ken Korach and Susan Slusser to autograph my copy of their book! ! Let’s go Oakland!

    Finished! Great read for fans. Ken and Susan come across well. I can hear their personalities as I read. Love the stories of how Clay Wood, Micky Morabito, and Vuc got their jobs. Great stories. Do other teams grounds keeper, travel person and equipment manager have such recognition? The 2018 season story was a little bitter sweet. Reading Ken's recollection of the 9/5/2018 game made it even harder. Can't wait for the A's to win a playoff series. Finished! Great read for fans. Ken and Susan come across well.

    This book is only worth if you're a die-hard A's fan. But if you're looking at it on Goodreads you're probably there already. It was interesting in terms of getting a view of what goes on behind the scenes, but I'm not sure if it was really worth the time. This book is only worth if you're a die-hard A's fan.

    I really enjoyed this insider's look at all aspects of the game and the organization. I was glad to read that both Korach and Slusser felt that the portrayal of Art Howe in the movie version of Moneyball was very unfair.

    The first chapter is a sludge to get through but the rest makes it worth it.

    I'm a huge A's fan and it was "just alright" I appreciate the broadcasters, but this book covered way too much broadcasting technique and stories of how they call games for having a title of "stories from the Oakland A's dugout..." I was hoping for more behind the scenes stories of Oakland A's that most A's fans haven't already heard. I'm still glad that I bought and read it. Just to be clear, I don’t think there was anything wrong with the writing style(s), I just think I was looking for a differ I'm a huge A's fan and it was "just alright" I appreciate the broadcasters, but this book covered way too much broadcasting technique and stories of how they call games for having a title of "stories from the Oakland A's dugout..."

Just to be clear, I don’t think there was anything wrong with the writing style(s), I just think I was looking for a different subject matter style book with the title that it has. I’m going to try Susan Slusser’s “100 things every A’s fan...” next. It’s probably more what I was looking for.
