Unlike most sports history books, Kahn's book isn't just a "and this happened next" book but rather both a historical account and almost a love story of the team he grew up with.
Combing the old-style card catalog (no computers in schools way back then) I found a listing for some sports books that I had not read. When I got to the right spot on the shelf I became mesmerized. There were a bunch of great looking book covers in bright and bold colors with scenes that I wished I were actually in. I had discovered the Chip Hilton Sports Story books, and they were mine to read.
