Jeff Pearlman - 2005-04-26
Goodreads Rating
An award-winning sports writer takes us back to the wild and crazy year of 1986 when the New York Mets, led by larger-than-life personalities like Keith Hernandez and Dwight Gooden, won 108 games and the World Series. But their bad-boy antics both off and on the field threatened to overshadow their achievements. This book celebrates the Mets' unforgettable cast of characters and their place in baseball history as one of the most rock-and-roll-and-party-all-night teams of all time.

Join General George Washington and his army on their intense journey towards American independence. In this powerful account, David McCullough captures the stories of Americans from all walks of life who fought for their noble ideals as well as the British commander and his disciplined redcoats. With extraordinary narrative, 1776 tells the story of two young American patriots, Nathaniel Green and Henry Knox, and the inexperienced but steadfast Washington, who had never before led an army in battle. Based on extensive research, this landmark work in American history is not to be missed.
