    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,"

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

    Behind the scenes


    What other book might you compare Francona to and why?

    The Brothers Esposito for the story BEHIND the championships.


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

    The ability for me to enjoy the book while driving.


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

    Francona . . . A winner DESPITE his team's idiot owners.


    Any additional comments?

    Minor snags in the narration which should have been caught by an astoute audio editor. Don't remember the specifics, but there were errors in the phrasing of a pitcher's record where, for example, something like "6-1" was spoken as "6-to-1" rather than "6-AND-1."
