Review quote

"One of the best books about baseball ever written."--"New York Daily News" "An insightful and non-hagiographic look at a legendary manager and team during one of baseball's most transformational eras."--"Boston Globe" "The consummate insider's view of what may be the last great dynasty in baseball history."--"Los Angeles Times" "An appealing portrait of a likable, hard-working man. One closes the book with a high regard for Mr. Torre, not least as a manager."--"Wall Street Journal" "A lively chronicle. . . . What this book does . . . very persuasively is chart the rise and fall of one of baseball's great dynasties, while showing the care and feeding it took to bring the city of New York four championships in five years." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "A capacious fresh account of [Torre's] great run in the Bronx.... Verducci has range and ease; he's a shortstop on the page." --"The New Yorker" "Compelling. . . . A hybrid of insider reporting [and] autobiography." --"The Christian Science Monitor" "Fascinating reading."--"The New York Times Book Review" "[Filled with] many insights, some about human nature, many about the great American game." --"Bloomberg News"show more
