Books

When Breath Becomes Air" is one of the best books I've read in years. All best to you, Lucy.
Fathers Day book 5 “Tiger Woods,” by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian. If I taught a reporting class, I’d make young students read this. How could our most written-about athlete have so many skeletons, so much we didn't know? Take a bow, Benedict and Keteyian. This book is great.
My 5 picks: 1 “Beartown,” by Fredrik Backman 2 “Bobby Kennedy,” by Chris Matthews 3 “Killers of the Flower Moon,” by David Grann 4 “The Rooster Bar,” by John Grisham 5 "Tiger Woods,” by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian.
Fathers Day book recommendations: -“Know My Name,” by Chanel Miller. (Powerful account of Stanford rape case.) -“The Boy From the Woods,” by Harlan Coben. -“The Body: A Guide for Occupants,” by Bill Bryson. -“The Hot Hand: The mystery and science of streaks,” by Ben Cohen.

Attaway, Tim. Lonnie's the best. So glad there's one last book to celebrate his greatness.

Please save some reading time for my review of “Know My Name” and interview with author Chanel Miller. One of the most impactful books I have read.
Fathers Day book 3 “Killers of the Flower Moon,” by David Grann A spellbinding tale of brazen multiple Native American murders on Osage land in Oklahoma 90-plus years ago. Tremendously researched. I can’t recommend the history and the gripping murder story enough. Read this.

2 books I love: Without You, There Is No Us, by Suki Kim. Billy Martin: Baseball’s Flawed Genius, by Bill Pennington.
Fathers Day Book 1: “Beartown,” by Fredrik Backman. Terrific, disturbing speed-read about hockey’s grip on a small Swedish town, and how the addiction to the game warps good people. Sports are fun. Sports are not life. Great lessons here. Could not put this book down.
RIP Jim Bouton, author of “Ball Four,” the greatest sports book of all time.
