    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.

    Sean says: "I enjoyed it a lot,"
    "Great Listen for a baseball fan"

    If you could sum up Francona in three words, what would they be?

    Great baseball book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tito! Love his no BS style. Stuck to the only way he knew how to do things and the big business of big-league ownership chewed him up and spit him out with no appreciation for his immense accomplishments. Good luck in Cleveland, Tito!


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great narration! Straight to the point. Loved his portrayals of Francona.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The ugly truth of business behind the game
