Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Culled from 50 years worth of columns from one of the countrys most popular sportswriters, this work stands as a remarkable collection of opinions that is guaranteed to delight Mets fans of all ages. Former New York Times columnist Ira Berkow captures the spirit of the Mets in this unforgettable collection of opinions, stories, and observations from his long and distinguished career as he interviews and comments on the team. From memories of inaugural franchise manager Casey Stengel and Hall of Famer Tom Seaver to reflections on ace Johan Santana and the superstar David Wright, this collection combines Berkows eye for detail with the comedy and drama revealed by the subjects themselves, bringing to life Mets personalities from the last half century.
