I've been a Mets fan since I was 5 years old....this book is great for historical content and starting conversations and nostalgia trips with the eldest fans in my family. I loved it!

Although I can’t imagine anyone but a diehard Mets fan enjoying this book, it fills its niche well. Beyond a quibble about the title (the majority of the 100 items listed in this book are things to “know” with only a few things to “do” thrown in), I thoroughly savored this book and all of the nostalgia it conjured for me—from Tom Terrific to Doc to HoJo, Straw, Mookie, Nails, and—of course—the quintessential moment in Mets history: Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. The author himself is a devout fan, and the book is sprinkled with trivia and the recollections of other fans. This is pure delight for the Metropolitan faithful.
