Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Silverman gives the Mets their due-and you can take that both ways-from their infamous beginnings as laughable losers to their triumphs and 2010 mediocrity. He includes colorful sidebars throughout, each with a "baseball card" image and write-up of one of his "top 50" Mets. There are also nicely presented box scores of famous games, and a final 8-page section for the Mets' "All Time Record Book." All library baseball collections with tons of Yankees books should balance their collections with this. A natural for Mets fans and to try to convert Yankees fans into Mets loyalists.—M.H. — "Sneak Peak," Booksmack! 1/20/11
