Baseball Therapy

book cover image The Utility of Boredom

Want to know why baseball is still popular? Says Canadian Andrew Forbes, the game's quiet rhythm has a therapeutic effect on the modern, distracted mind.

"The game is almost over", confirms the National Post reviewer on her first trip to the Rogers Centre, "when I realize I haven’t looked at my phone once."

The Utility of Boredom is a collection of essays about baseball: 25 pieces spread across a mere 150 pages, and each one is tender and insightful.
