Book Reviews

This is a list of baseball, NPB and Hanshin-related books I have read since the start of 2015. Feel free to click on the book thumbnails to read a detailed review. (They are listed roughly in the order I would recommend them to others.)

The thumbnailed books at the bottom of the page are ones in my library that are waiting on deck. Give me some recommendations of other books you think are worth reading in the comments section!
