If you love baseball, sign up for Molly Knight's The Long Game right now. The author of 'The Best Team Money Can Buy' has great insight into MLB and hosts live discussions during the playoffs that offer some of the best, most fun, chat on what's going on during the game that I've found anywhere. I was a huge fan of the game growing up and lost my enthusiasm for it during the steroid scandal, but Knight has helped me rediscover it.
Combine the eye of John Grogan with the wit and humor of Dave Barry and you get Scott Hines, who writes about all the things -- and all the feels -- that go with being a father in this world. I just love this newsletter.
If you loved Bill Bryson's 'A Short History of Nearly Everything,' you'll love Mike's newsletter as much as I do — it's filled with fascinating stuff in exactly the same style and sense of curiosity.
Liza Donnelly is doing what I always wanted to do when I was a kid: draw for a living. She draws just about anything and everything she sees around her, with commentary about what inspired her, what she was thinking as she drew it, and what it all means. Every time I see it in my inbox, I love reading it.
If you're fascinated with why people do what they do for a living, and how they do it, then you'll love this newsletter by Neal Bascomb, who just happens to be the author of 'The Perfect Mile,' the story of Roger Bannister's legendary quest to break the 4-minute mile.
