Being from Philly, I'm naturally not a big Mets fan, but this book really has it's interests beyond Mets fandom. For one thing the first 150 pages or so are a not-bad general history of the game in New York City, with particular emphasis, naturally, on the Giants & Dodgers leaving and the Mets taking their place. Through this history of baseball and the dealings behind it, you get a very good picture of the city itself.

Part of the reason for this is the fact that Golenbock extensively uses interview transcripts, and for the folks that lived it, baseball of the 1950s and 60s took place in a much broader context, which Golenbock wisely leaves in, and even enlarges upon.

The latter parts of the book are more strictly baseball focused and somewhat less interesting, but there's a lot of baseball to cover to cover and the book is more than 600 pages long, so that's understandable.

One of the better New York City baseball books I've read, and there are some good ones out there. ( )

A year-by-year account of the New York Mets. The story of their creation is a fascinating one that shook the foundations of Major League Baseball and almost led to the creation of a third major league.

The story is told almost entirely by the players and executives who made up the Mets over the years. My only complaint is with the last three years that are covered (1998-2000). Rather than getting the story from several different perspectives, the author relies entirely on one player, pitcher Al Leiter, to tell the tale. I guess he couldn't get anyone else to talk to him, but it would have been better to have some other perspectives. This section really drags compared to the earlier parts of the book.

I've never been a fan of the Mets but found the book very entertaining and informative throughout. I'd love to read similar books about the other twenty-nine Major League Baseball franchises. ( )
