Publisher's Summary

A dramatic and revelatory account of Joe Torre's 12 years as manager of the New York Yankees.

Joe Torre is the most successful and most respected baseball manager of the modern era, steering the Yankees to six American League pennants and four World Series championships. When he left the team in 2007, it was front-page news around the country.

Written as a third-person narrative with Sports Illustrated Senior Baseball Writer Tom Verducci, The Yankee Years is a thoughtful, utterly honest, and gripping behind-the-scenes look at the Yankees organization from top to bottom.

    "Joe Torre and his Yankee years"

    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.
