KIRKUS REVIEW

For those who haven't kept up on their weekly news magazine reading, Maddick is the imprimatur of ""Schaap's shop"" where ""transcriptions are backed up like 707's at J.F.K."" The Namath book is the first and this is the second of many taped mss. to come and this one deals with nine games (beginning July 8th, 1969) when the meteoric Mets not only lost last place but showed signs of winning the pennant. In minute by minute, or ten to fifteen intervals, you'll not only follow the games but determine who eats breakfast where or what color socks superstar Seaver wears. According to Schaap's instant formula for these instant books there is the instant comment which makes them immediate: Jerry Koosman can be overheard saying ""I perspire more than the normal guy"" or Leo lipping a sullen ""Go love yourself."" Or Mrs. Babe Ruth echoing that national sentiment--""I think they're adorable.
