Reviews

In Up, Up & Away, Jonah Keri has produced a book that is one part history, one part local legend, one part eulogy, and one part letter to a lost love. The Montreal Expos deserved a book, and they deserved this book. — Bruce Arthur, National Post

Jonah Keri's Up, Up, and Away is a genius hunk of a book... Frequently funny and uplifting. — David McGimpsey, The Globe and Mail

His work at Grantland has seen Keri rise to become one of the most popular and respected baseball writers in North America. — Mike Cormack, Sportsnet

Part historical account, part oral history and part autobiography, Keri poured a lifetime of passion for his team and city into the book, and it shows on every page... Keri seamlessly blends the team’s tales together to make for an engaging read, using his treasure trove of personally conducted interviews and own life experiences to make for a truly unique book. — Paul Swydan, Hardball Times

A very fine piece of work... A book that is a near perfect homage to a team that surely deserved a better fate. Up, Up, and Away made me remember, smile, and laugh out loud. — Jim Cunningham, Calgary Fast Forward Weekly

It's a fun read, engrossing and informative, and shows both a fan's heartfelt passion and a reporter's meticulous approach to gathering and disseminating information. — Pete Kerzel, MASN Sports

This is the best baseball book I've ever read. It tackles just about every important topic from all sides and it's just... well... brilliant. That's all I can say, it's brilliant. — Len Kasper, Cubs Play-by-Play Announcer

The depth of their knowledge is not merely formidable or impressive. It is downright frightening. — Bob Ryan, Boston Globe
