This book tells the complete, unvarnished story of the great Tom Seaver, that rarest of all American heroes, the New York Sports Icon. In a city that produces not mere mortals but sports gods, Seaver represented the last of a breed. Here is "Tom Terrific" of the "Amazin' Mets," worthy of a place alongside DiMaggio, Ruth, Mantle, and Namath in the pantheon of New York idols.
