    1. Innocuous collection of newspaper columns by a fine writer; nothing very revealing or original. I found the title a little misleading as well, as the book is not exclusively Mets-related journalism. In fact, the final sections, which profile notable baseball personalities and issues, are perhaps the most absorbing in the book. (See pieces on Tom Paciorek and "God Bless America.") I bought this, but don't need to own it.

    2. Decent book of anecdotes mostly about the Mets but a with chapter of other stories added as filler. All are previously printed columns from Berkow and the quality is uneven.
