"Paul D. Aron has written a compelling series of essays attempting to solve the most vexing 28 mysteries associated with the great game of baseball. Does he solve them once and for all? You'll have to read this fine, enjoyable book to find out."
—Paul Dickson, author of The New Dickson Baseball Dictionary

"Paul Aron's book on elements of baseball is both wise and fun, illuminating and entertaining." R 12 ;Robert Adair, author of The Physics of Baseball

"Has Paul Aron read everything ever written about baseball? This appears to be the case, and he's therefore able to answer all the age-old questions (What was the real story behind Steinbrenner's banishment?) and new ones as well (What's really going on with 'clutch' hitting?). I'm almost afraid Aron has taken the fun out of the game. There are no more mysteries. With this fiendishly clever book, everything is revealed."
—Mike Bryan, author of Baseball Lives and co-author of Keith Hernandez's two books, Pure Baseball and If At First: A Season With the Mets
