Mark Purdy of the San Jose Mercury-News, lamenting the fact that the Selena Roberts book isn’t selling all that well:
It does confirm one of my beliefs, however. There’s a perception that fans love to read dirt about famous athletes. Maybe they do, on salacious Web sites full of half-truths — but not in well-reported books that rely on facts.
Right now it’s just a hypothesis, however. It can’t be tested until there is actually a well-reported book about Rodriguez that relies on the facts.
