    Too much Howie and not enough about hthe Mets. Deceptive title about a half-century of Mets mania. Expected a whole lot more in the way of Mets anecdotes and stories. Too much detail on Howie's entry into broadcasting, hero worship of Marv Albert and hockey broadcasting. Wanted & expected more Mets. Didn't deliver. Save your money on this one. I wish I had.You can put that it in the book.
