Recently, I had the pleasure of reading “Curse? There Ain’t No Stinking Chicago Cub Curse: And Other Stories about Sports and Gamesmanship” by bestselling author of “Little Balls, Big Dreams” James Wolfe and Mary Ann Pressman. This book is a collection of 11 short stories that will hold your attention and leave you wanting more from each and every story. Both Wolfe and Pressman have such descriptive writing skills that you are enamored by each story within the first couple of paragraphs. The stories cover everything from baseball to Scrabble. Personal favorites of mine were the main title “Curse? There Ain’t No Stinking Chicago Cub Curse”, “Only 3 More Outs” and “Gambling 101”. The book leads off with the title story and never lets off the gas. Living in Las Vegas, I was reading “Gambling 101” and shaking my head with a smirk on my face because I knew how the story was going to end. I also coach Little League baseball so I was definitely entertained by “Only 3 More Outs”. If you are an avid sports fan then you will definitely appreciate this book. It allows you to sit down and step away from the main stream sports while still being entertained. I can guarantee you that you will be able to relate an experience you, your family or your friends have had to anyone of these short stories. You can purchase this book on Amazon.com for $12.95 or head on over to JamesWolfeBooks.com where you can pick up this and other great titles.
