Harper, New York : 2010.

In his classic tribute to America's pastime?now with a new introduction?political commentator, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and lifelong sports enthusiast George F. Will travels from the baseball field to the dugout to the locker room to get to the root of the game we all love. He breaks down the sport to its four basic components, managing, pitching, hitting, and fielding, and analyzes the way four of its notables, manager Tony La Russa, pitcher Orel Hershiser, outfielder Tony Gwynn, and shortstop Cal Ripken Jr., approach the game. One of the most acclaimed sports books ever written, Men at Work is a revelatory, and often surprising, study of professional baseball.

  Statecraft as soulcraft

Blackstone Audio Books, Ashland, OR : ℗1991.

In Statecraft as Soulcraft, George F. Will examines the belief, which dates back to the founding of the nation, that there is no right principle of action but self-interest. He questions the founding fathers' faith that moral balance and national cohesiveness will arise merely out of the government's encouragement of the free operation of opposite and rival interests. Two hundred years later, says Will, it just hasn't worked out that way. Instead, we have become a nation of individuals and interest groups given to habitual self-indulgence in the unchecked pursuit of material acquisitions and private passions. Much of the fault, he says, may be traced to our inadequate understanding of the guiding role that government can and should play in determining the country's moral character. Proper government, Will says, involves the cultivation of good character in its citizens. This is what he means by statecraft as soulcraft.
