"Wrigleyworld"

My daughter who is home from college and who also has the Cubs gene, brought me a book to read over the holiday.  

"Wrigleyworld" by Kevin Kaduk is a funny look at the 2005 Cubs season.  Kaduk takes the summer off to spend at Wrigley.  His take on the season is often funny, sometimes sad (like the game where Prior was hit in the elbow) but he almost always captures the sights and sounds that are "Wrigleyworld".  Little did he know at the time that the 2006 Season would suck even more than the 2005 season.

I was with him on those cold spring days when the wind cuts right through.  "The Hawk" finds you when you are at Wrigley in April, it comes with the territory.  Then there are the  sun drenched days later in the summer when the smell of beer and fried foods wafts through the air reminding you that you can only be in one place.. "Wrigley Field".

So, I thought maybe reading some good books about the Cubs during the off season might make the winter months go by a little quicker, even though today it's 60 outside... how bad can that be?

Are there books others have read specifically about the Cubs that they can recommend?  Any one else read the book "Wrigleyworld"?  What were your thoughts?
