Ron Kaplan's Baseball Bookshelf is the best baseball book site around, and last week I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ron about the just-published new edition of the book that I co-wrote with Brendan Boyd - The Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading And Bubblegum Book.
I've done a lot of author interviews since my book was first published - on television, radio, and over the phone - and it's not often that the interviewer has actually read and enjoyed the book. Usually, they're just filling space on their program, website or blog, and they're thrilled to have an author who is engaging and willing to do all the talking. But in Ron's case, he really read the book, and his questions were informed and engaging - about the book, specific cards, the Topps company, and about baseball in general. It was a whole lot of fun.
Here's a link to the audio podcast of the interview on Ron's site. It runs about thirty minutes.
