From Tom Seaver to Gary Carter, from Ron Swoboda to Al Leiter, the players whose stories make up Amazin' will delight sports fans everywhere. As he did with his classics of sports literature, Bums, and Dynasty, The New York Times bestselling sportswriter turns to a team that has both captured and broken the hearts of generations of fans.

Utilizing dozens of personal interviews with players, coaches, fans, sportswriters, and clubhouse personnel, Amazin' takes readers from the bumbling but lovable 1962 team to the 1986 world champion juggernaut, and up to today. Peter Golenbock has created the perfect gift for every baseball fan: an unbelievable treasure trove of wondrous stories and unforgettable anecdotes.

Annotation:
A popular history of New York City's wildly popular (if second in other ways to the Yankees) baseball team. Golenbock chronicles its less than auspicious beginnings in the early 1960s--when the fumbling team was last in the league--through the end of the decade when they won the World Series, and beyond. Through steady fan support, a winning team was assembled, with great names like Tom Seaver, Keith Hernandez, and more.
