Description of the book "October 1964":
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
THE BEST SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR
"October 1964 should be a hit with old-time baseball fans, who'll relish the opportunity to relive that year's to-die-for World Series, when the dynastic but aging New York Yankees squared off against the upstart St. Louis Cardinals.

Most of all, however, David Halberstam's new book should be PDF a hit with anyone interested in understanding the important interplay between sports and society."
—The Boston Globe
"Compelling...1964 is a chronicle of the end of a great dynasty and of a game, like the country, on the cusp of enormous change."
"Halberstam's latest gives us the feeling of actually being there—in another time, in the locker rooms and in the minds of baseball legends. His time and effort researching the book result in a fluency with his topic and a fluidity of writing that make the reading almost effortless....Absorbing."
—San Francisco Chronicle
"Wonderful...Memorable...Halberstam describes the final game of PDF the 1964 series accurately and so dramatically, I almost thought I had forgotten the ending."
—The Washington Post Book World
"Superb reporting...Incisive analysis...You know from the start that Halberstam is going to focus on a large human canvas...One of the many joys of this book is the humanity with which Halberstam explores the characters as well as the talents of the players, coaches and managers.

Following his #1 baseball bestseller Summer of '49, David Halberstam PDF gives us the Yankees-Cardinals World Series that concluded the '64 season -- a transformational American moment, both inside and outside the ballpark. A book of deep insight and importance, October 1964 is also, like Halberstam's previous baseball work, a great read.
