If you are or know of a baseball fan who remembers the 70's, you need to buy this book. I read it in two days, and I was sorry when it ended. I remember a good number of the games described, but there was plenty I didn't know--and I'm a pretty fanatical fan. I read some of the anecdotes out loud for my fiance, who is only recently a baseball fan, and it made her laugh. An absolute delight from the first page to the last.

This book covered my "formative" years with the game of baseball. Coming off the Miracle Mets of 1969, I was hooked as a youngster as the 1970s began. Epstein does a great job highlighting each year and the major events that occurred, as well as throwing in separate chapters on a variety of trends and social highlights of the times. This decade covered my life from the age of 8 through high school, so it was a huge hit for me. Even if you were born after the 1970s, you will love this book. Personally, it was fun to relive baseball and my youthful memories while reading this book.
