I purchased and read Mr. Snyder's book about the Cubs and enjoyed it very much. While there were a handful of mistakes in it, they were fairly minor and failed to detract from my enjoyment of it. But with Mets Journal, Snyder seems to have merely phoned in the effort, judging by the number of errors that seem to crop up on every other page.

Beyond the mistakes listed in the previous reviews, here's a couple that cropped up inside of a handful of pages: 1) Rusty Staub cannot be the team's HR leader for the entire decade of the 70s. Snyder lists him as the decade leader with 62 HR, apparently forgetting that Dave Kingman hit 82 HR as a Met from 1975 until he was traded in 1977. 2) In a related error, in the article about the Midnight Massacre, he states that Kingman went on to lead the NL in home runs in 1978 as a Cub and 1981, again with the Mets. But it was actually 1979 that Kingman led the NL while a Cub, with 48 HR. He only hit 22 in the strike-shortened 1981 season, but did lead the league once again in 1982 with 37. That particular performance was note-worthy because he became the first Met to lead the league in a major offensive category, and he set a new low for a HR leader's batting average, .204. It was the first time in history that a league's Cy Young winner (Steve Carlton) had a higher batting average (.218) than the HR leader.

I am more than willing to recommend Snyder's book on the Cubs, but I cannot endorse this book. It's full of mistakes, and if you know anything at all about the Mets and their history, you'll find trying to read it an exercise in frustration.

The book is a fun read, but I agree with the two previous reviews, in that there are several errors within. I couldn't believe the Kenny Rogers allowing the game winning single in Game 6 of the 1999 NLCS. Anyone who's been a Mets fan since then knows that's not accurate. A couple others I can think of right now, the Mets trading Jeff Franceour to the Braves for Ryan Church (it was the other way around), and trading Kris Benson to the O's for John Maine and Julio Jorge (should have been Jorge Julio). Edgardo Alfonzo's name is spelled Alfonso throughout his time with the Mets. Maybe the editing was done by a Yankees fan. This book is really only for huge Mets fans, who will recognize the errors, and use it to jar memories. It's not for someone who wants to learn Mets history, because you can't be sure what is and isn't accurate.

I am currently reading this book, and the amount of editing mistakes is atrocious. For example, for the best moment of the 1960's, it is written that it is when Cleon Jones catches the final out of the 1969 World Series. However, on October 16, 1969, the author writes that the final out of the World Series was recorded by Ron Swoboda. On May 30, 1978, it reads "...Silvio Martinez of the Cardinals pitches a one-hitter to beat the Cardinals 8-2." So Silvio Martinez pitched a one-hitter against his own team? Or how about September 3, 1978, when it mentions that Lee Mazzilli hits homers from both sides of the plate, then goes on to say they were both hit from the right side of the plate.
This book has so many mistakes and errors it is actually hard to read at times. I am surprised this book got published, what with all the errors in it.
