Books on the Giants

a few months ago, jcb9 did a post on summer reading lists, and I was later wondering if we had a thread on books that are actually about the Giants, couldn't find one though

I figured it would be fun to do some boning up on the history of the SF ballclub, so I just got ahold of a copy of San Francisco Giants: Where Have You Gone? by Matt Johanson.  I'll use this thread to post quotes or comments from it as I'm reading it (I'm in the middle of Glenn Dickey's 49ers right now which I'll probably finish first).

I was wondering, has anyone read Johanson's book before?  If so, what did you think of it?

Does anyone have any top SF Giants history books that they'd recommend as the best that are out there?

I actually haven't seen too many, so if we could use this thread to compile of list of the books out there on the Giants, that would be cool too.
