I’ve long enjoyed reading books about people who have been publicly successful in some form or another. I particularly enjoy being inspired and challenged by people who manage to live a full life with their faith in the public sphere.
I’ve been a bit hit and miss with my baseball watching over the years. I’ll periodically pop in and watch some of the playoffs, but I’e not watched much at all since the years when the Blue Jays were winning last century. I hadn’t really heard much of Pujols, so I was quite interested in the book.
Pujols, More Than a Game presents the career and life of Pujols. It does a good job of highlighting his successes, and filling in the details of his career and life. I found the sections on Pujols personal life and faith informative and inspiring. In particular his attitude and conversations around first base are awesome. I’m grateful to hear of his generosity, and how much he gives.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how Pujols lives his life.
