Book Review: A Nice Little Place On The Northside

14687113A Nice Little Place On The North Side: A History Of Triumph, Mostly Defeat, and Incurable Hope At Wrigley Field, written by: George F. Will, is a book centered around the history of the ever famous and possible even infamous Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs.

George Will has a deep love for Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs. Will slowly moves through the history of Wrigley Field with grace and elegance. He does not try to rush through the information as if he were bogged down by a time commitment. Instead, he moves through with a pace that pays tribute to the historical image of Wrigley, the Cubs and their propensity towards less than elegant standings. He doesn’t just cover the history of Wrigley Field. He masterfully demonstrates how the history ties into and plays an integral part in the Cubs’ consistently dismal standings.

This publication is very engaging, inundated with historical facts, and surrounded by the mystery and misery that is the Chicago Cubs. This would make a wonderful gift for any die hard Cubs fan.
