  • Mike P. "mikep007" - PLAY BALL!!!!As an avid baseball fan and rotissierie player (22 years now), this is my all time favorite book. It's the only thing I actually pre-order every year, religiously. I also prefer it in paperback, despite the fact all my other books are in Kindle form -- it's simply that kind of book.

    If you don't know, this is a statistician's bible: it contains several articles on the state of statistical analysis then presents each team and over 2,2100 individual players. Each team section contains a few pages analyzing the team's performance and potential for 2013, and the players are divided alphabetcally by hitter and pitchers -- the last of the team section summarizes the manager's performance and includes minor league names and commentary as well. Each of the player section analyzes performance and offers predictions based on statistical analysis. Here's the best part: the text accompanying each player's stats is witty, insightful and just plain fun -- it's not dry but instead a good source of witty humor and observation from a qualitative perspective.

    First, from the rotissiere baseball player perspective, it's a must have. But be clear: it's not a replacement for all your spreadsheets or online data. It augments it. Your spreadsheets will tell you so-and-so is in for a big season and this statiscal tome will tell you not to get too excited. I've often found this book's predictions to be noticeably lower than other sources, but it's all because of the nature of statistical analysis. The best value for roto owners is that you can use it to doublecheck your draft strategy and check to see if you really like the players you think you do! I bring it to the draft and throw out the funniest sarcastic lines from the book.

    Second, any baseball fan will enjoy the articles and player notes -- while it's definately heavy on the math and prediction, the articles, team descriptions and player analysis are completely worthwhile, even if you don't give a whit about stats.

    Play Ball!
  • ChristineS. - More than an ordinary blender...Lord Jesus, from up above, deliver us from long tedious reviews on Amazon. The Nutribullet will probably save my life, as I heal from Breast cancer sans radical surgery, chemo, drugs or radiation. After grappling with juicers, blenders,& frustrated with the strict green diet, this surely is God-sent. The bullet is incredibly easy and fun! It's not "just a blender", but seems akin to an external new digestive tract. The gut took a beatin' from antibiotics, Nsaids, stress, caffeine; wasn't assimilating nutrients properly. I've had sinus headaches for decades due to food sensitivities, which no longer exist since blasting. My supplements can cost upwards of $1,000. per month, but now I feel comfortable reducing them. The Bullet is so powerful;as if it's going to dance on the countertop or blast-off into the stratosphere, yet it gently pulverizes. Go Raw!
  • Katie Kat - Great improvement to my oral healthI have been using the Hydrofloss for over a year and been very pleased with the results. Gets things brushing and flossing alone do not get. Fill the tank with ozonated water for an extra boost. Add a tiny bit of essential oil or mouthwash to the water also works great. My only comment would be that taking the tank off and on for cleaning all the time makes it harder to properly seat it to make the proper connection for water flow.
