Insightful and SatisfyingReviewed in the United States on 27 July 2017
This is a very insightful and satisfying book about the miracle season of the Mets. Stanley Cohen paints a vivid picture against the backdrop of the wider state of affairs of that era, from baseball to national events. I came away with an understanding of how baseball operated in a more innocent time and how it was about to irrevocably change. And I learned a lot of details about my favorite Mets players from my youth. My only wish was that the book included more artwork, including color photos.
Brings Back The MagicReviewed in the United States on 6 September 2009
This is the perfect book for a Mets fan suffering through a horrible season. The author perfectly mixes game recaps with interviews. I liked that he didn't dwell on the sociological significance of the season or related world events, instead emphasizing how the Mets won the Series. Even if you think that you know everything about the '69 Mets, you will learn something. I loved this book.

Any book about the Metsies will hold my attention,but his present day interviews with the players and coaches make this a very special book.
