"Twice a twenty-game winner, voted the Cy Young Award as best pitcher in his league, one of sixteen men in history to pitch a perfect game, the holder of five World Series rings and a place among the elite pitchers of the nineties, David Cone has been renowned for his pale-faced hostility on the mound and as a poised, highly intelligent spokesman for baseball itself. Cone and Roger Angell have known each other for years, and their conversations and shared emotions as Cone encounters his most difficult season - a battle against the tilted odds of age and injury and luck - keep coming back to the central challenge for a professional: Go out there and be great for us again today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

It's difficult to read this book because steroid usage wasn't known at the time it was written. The book follows a season with David Cone, after winning 20 games in the previous season. Cone became the first pitcher to have 10 years between 20 game winning seasons (red flag?). Cone had a pretty colourful season in MLB, but a lot of it is only mentioned in passing: drug use on the 1985 KC Royals, partying with the 1989 Mets, 1994 players strike and the steroid era. Hopefully the next book about Cone will get into more of the ugly details and fall-out.
