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. Famously diplomatic during his tenure with the Yankees, Torre finally speaks out about what it was like building and managing the dynasty during those 12 glorious and tumultuous years.

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.

    "Good read for non-Yankee fans, too."

    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.

    "Great "Tell It Like It Is" book!"

    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.

    "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.
