Steven Travers has produced a certifiable masterpiece with this portrayal of those Amazin' '69 Mets; the team that inspired the imagination of fans everywhere by not only making it to the World Series, but winning it as well, despite overwhelming odds. It's a great book.
Travers brings the people & events clearly into focus, 40 years after the fact, with such clarity, it seems like it's a present-day story; it was a brilliant depiction of a team that may have appeared to be a bit flawed, but banded together in stunning fashion to shock the baseball world.
Rarely has a team captured the imagination of an entire country like those Mets, and it's a treat to recapture that magical season, with a superb piece of writing.
