I recently read the book "The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood" by Jane Leavy. Anybody else read it? Mantle is portrayed as a great athlete with no real direction other than baseball. His passing out drunk with his head in the lap of the author was difficult to read.

I've read several Mantle bios but have not seen this one yet. Based on everything thing else I have read, the above description sounds about right.
