The latest and most complete story of the Mick.
Having read just about every book that has been published on Mickey Mantle, I can't think of any book that comes close to completely covering the life of Mickey as well as Jane Leavy has done with this recent publication. Many of the chapters offer nothing new to what has already been written about Mickey, but at the same time much new and more detailed history is documented to add what we already knew from earlier books. If you have never read a book about Mickey or the Yankees, this book covers more ground than anything before or since. Great style of writing that makes the book both interesting and entertaining. A great story, well told.
