Edited by Daniel Okrent and Harris Lewine

Published in hardcover in 1979, this book includes some entrancing old illustrations and charming writing by such literary figures as Wilfrid Sheed, George V. Higgins and Mordecai Richler. Fans should be warned, though. While it is ostensibly updated through last season, this paperback edition only goes up to 1978, except for one statistical table. (Houghton Mifflin, paper, $15.95)
