    From famed manager Terry Francona, a lively, unvarnished narrative of his tenure with the storied Boston Red Sox... From 2004 to 2011, Terry Francona managed the Boston Red Sox, the most talked-about, scrutinized team in all of sports. In Francona the legendary manager opens up for the first time about his eight years there, as they went from cursed franchise to one of the most successful and profitable in baseball history. He takes listeners inside the rarefied world of a 21st-century clubhouse.

    Story

    A recap of Francona's years as the manager of the Red Sox; it doesn't reveal much behind-the-scenes information that hadn't already been made public in the Boston press. The detail presented in the book and too-frequent quotes from Francona and Epstein and clubhouse guys make this book relevant only to the most avid Red Sox fan, and perhaps a few others who are curious about general aspects oft baseball - clubhouse atmosphere, friendship networks among past teammates, coaching experiences, etc. The narrator was good enough, and I learned from him that the plural of the abbreviation for runS batted in is RBI, with no "S" on the end. And I also learned that Francona used the word F*** in every sentence, which was faithfully represented in his quotes.

    John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover.

    Story

    This is fast-paced, well-told story, even if the events are implausible. Easy and compelling listen.
