This is a delicious read. Einstein weaves many aspects of life in the 50's and 60's into this paen to the greatest baseball player of all time (in my mind), Willie Mays. He writes of the truly marvelous talents of Mays, but he also includes societal habits and ways, presidents of the era, the eclipse of the old and and the advent the new, of the things we take for granted, not the least of which are television and jet travel. You will chortle and possibly emit an involuntary snort of two from your nostrils (you are fairly warned!) when reading this book. Who knew Babe Ruth loved batting practice so much!
