That being said... it’s all a bit too brief. If you are a die hard fan and probably have read books about the team before, this one might be a bit too ‘light’. Recounting 60 years in 326 pages doesn’t give you a lot of room to go deep. For example, instead of 55 pages about the 60’s I’d rather read ‘The Last Innocents’ by Michael Leahy. Mentioning Roy Campanella is mandatory, but if you really want to know the man, read ‘Campy: the Two Lives of Roy Campenella’ by Neil Lanctot.
As with a lot of these sports books there are too many typos and missing words. It seems like proof reading and final editing are something of the past. It’s unprofessional and honestly it’s irritating as hell. Still... for now, this book has a description of the 2017 season. So, until the first entire book about the NL Pennant winners comes out, this is the book for you. You get 15 pages describing the roller coaster season, including that 7-game World Series.
