If you love the New York Yankees, arguably the most storied franchise in all of sports—or even if you’re just a fan of baseball history, or big business bios—this biography of the larger-than-life team owner for the past four decades is a must for your bookshelf. For more than 30 years Bill Madden has covered the Yankees and Major League Baseball for the New York Daily News, and he brings all his insights and inside connections to Steinbrenner: the definitive biography of one of New York’s most intriguing and long-standing sports figures, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
This is a great behind the scenes account of the Yankees and how they became a baseball dynasty. It give an in depth account of how Steinbrenner systematically built the team and in some sense destroyed it during the 80' and early 90's. It was a great book for all baseball fans more particularly Yankees fans because it told you stories that never appeared in the newspapers. Great reading!
I was able to gain some insight about a very complex man. This is a great baseball book and I recommend it!
Loved this book. He was truly an icon and forever will be missed. This is a definite read for any yankee fan such as myself!
