The definitive story of one of the greatest dynasties in baseball history, Joe Torre's New York Yankees.
When Joe Torre took over as manager of the Yankees in 1996, they had not won a World Series title in eighteen years. In that time seventeen others had tried to take the helm of America’s most famous baseball team. Each one was fired by George Steinbrenner. After twelve triumphant seasons—with twelve straight playoff appearances, six pennants, and four World Series titles—Torre left the Yankees as the most beloved manager in baseball. But dealing with players like Jason Giambi, A-Rod, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Roger Clemens, and Randy Johnson is what managing is all about. Here, for the first time, Joe Torre and Tom Verducci take readers inside the dugout, the clubhouse, and the front office, showing what it took to keep the Yankees on top of the baseball world.

Great book with inside information
I loved this book and would totally recomend this to any sports fan
I loved this book and I would recomend this to any sports fan in general. The insight is incredable on how Joe Torre was pushed by the late George Steinbrenger to keep pushing his team and keep winning enven though he thought he had done enough. I really didn't think he had that much pressure on him untill I read this but now I understand why he had to leave the team he loved. plus this book proves the old stigma the better the player the worse coach/Gm proves true. I'm not saying he was a bad player but he wasn't all time great.
Excellent book. I felt Torre provided a unique perspective of things.
