Good "beach reading" if you're into baseball or 70's pop culture.

Not bad, nothing special but a few interesting nuggets. A lot of music intermixed with baseball, but personally I could have done without the music stuff.
Well written and was kept interesting, so that’s a plus.

This was an entertaining look at one of baseball's most unique decades - the 70s. It was fun for this fan (who lived in that era) to revisit some of the best teams, best players, and most interesting characters from 1970-79. The great teams - the Big Red Machine, the Mustache Gang, and the Bronx Zoo - were all featured, along with plenty about Reggie Jackson, Billy Martin, Pete Rose, Nolan Ryan, Johnny Bench, George Steinbrenner, Charley Finley, Dick Allen, Dock Ellis, the Perry brothers, and even, Bill "Spaceman" Lee (plus many more). There are also numerous anecdotes about player nicknames, the ballparks, the wild uniforms, outrageous hairstyles/facial hair, and social changes of the decade.
Author Dan Epstein rehashes each year in some detail in a separate chapter with a recap of the pennant races, league MVP competition, and World Series winners. He even throws in a little pop culture free of charge with each year. This book brought back a lot of pleasant memories for this baseball fan!

Loved every minute I spent reading this book. I felt as though I was transported back to my youth when I first became enamored with baseball. There were so many details that I either forgot or did not know. The 1970’s were the golden era of major league baseball and the author did a wonderful job bringing that decade back to life. The book was well-researched and was an enjoyable read.
