I would actually give this 3.5 stars. An interesting, concise look into the 1961 season. I loved the interviews with people who were there, and Pepe does a good job into putting the home run chase into context. However, Pepe's background as a beat writer comes out a bit too much; I didn't need quite so many descriptions of numerous at-bats and plays throughout the season. Also, while Pepe understandably gives more background about Maris's life, he barely gives any information about Mantle's back [...]

Fantastic. This book gave really great and clear insight into the 1961 home run race between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Focusing a great deal more on Maris we receive greater insight into the impact the race had on someone that truly was a quiet family man. Nobody in the modern era could have possibly hit as many home runs without performance enhancers and this book is a great insight into the pressure that makes the feat impossible today.

Decent account of the 1961 home run chaseThis is a straight-forward account of Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle's pursuit of the single-season home run record in 1961. Maris is the main focus of the book, which was a good read but did not really shed new information on the subject.
