Yankee faithful and haters alike will relish this pitch-by-pitch retelling of one of baseball's most remarkable feats: Don Larsen's perfect game in game five of the 1956 World Series. Larsen, one of the game's beloved figures, has remained humble and unaffected as his record has stood unequalled for four decades. In this book with sports journalist Mark Shaw, he throws in asides on his teammates, his opponents, even the umpires who worked the game. Larsen's memoir recalls a time when nobody spat in anyone's face, strikes were called only on the field, and baseball was still the national pastime.
... the suspense builds with each description of the 97 pitches he threw that fateful day ... -- The New York Times Book Review, Michael Anderson
