"Though, as the title indicates, there aren't too many happy events recorded in the book, it remains fascinating for the many stories and details Longert has pulled from his research."--Akron Beacon-Journal
"Tribe fans will read it with great enthusiasm and baseball historians will reference it often, as Scott Longert brings much new, important information to the table. I particularly appreciated the backstories of the players and the conflicts that the team faced: old stadium versus new, radio broadcasts versus not, and day games versus night."--Jon Hart, author of Man versus Ball: One Ordinary Guy and His Extraordinary Sports Adventures
"Much has been written about the great Indians players of the 1930s, but not so much on the team itself, and the building of the stadium is a great backdrop. Longert knows his stuff and goes to the right sources, and excels at capturing life in baseball at a particularly critical time for Clevelanders as well as the country."--Marc Bona, features writer,
"In so many baseball books, the authors report on too many details of too many games. Longert is more selective, sometimes only recounting key moments of pivotal games. I was sorry when this book ended."--Book Reviews by Charles
"Avid baseball fans, especially Cleveland fans, will enjoy No Money, No Beer, No Pennants....A fine addition to any baseball fan's bookshelf."--Canadian Journal of History
