The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty Oct 25, 2007
This is, without a doubt, the best sports book I've ever read. Buster Olney does a masterful job of capturing the essence of the Yankees organization, team and the pressure Joe Torre and the players were under. I read the book during the month of September 2007 when that the Yankees were winning and closing quickly on the division leading Red Sox; I had a better understanding of what was involved. One point that Olney communicated so well: the ownership of the Yankees by George Steinbrenner has ruined that organization and MLB. That was why it was so "sweet" that Arizona won the 2001 World Series and brought some reality back to MLB.
