This is the perfect book for a Mets fan suffering through a horrible season. The author perfectly mixes game recaps with interviews. I liked that he didn't dwell on the sociological significance of the season or related world events, instead emphasizing how the Mets won the Series. Even if you think that you know everything about the '69 Mets, you will learn something. I loved this book.
