I really enjoyed the book. After hearing all of the negative talk on the NY sports talk radio stations I wasn't sure what to think. Along with all the expected behind the scenes stories I really enjoyed the excerpts regarding the transformation of the Red Sox and Indians organizations vs. the old school Yankees management ways.
It's amazing how different quotes from the book are taken out of context in the talk shows. I very glad that I listened to for myself.
And yet Torre has a way of being honest and critical without attacking his former Yankee players. This book gives you great insight into major league baseball and playing in New York.
Quite simply the best sports book I have ever listened/read. And there are plenty of those.
I am not a baseball fanatic, yet the little stories within the game a fascinating.
Also what was great were the descriptions of relationships among players within the team.
Joe continually based Yankees,the failures were the Yankees never his.Yankee fans should be glad he is gone.
