If Rooting for the Yankees is like Rooting for US Steel...
. . . Then this book is like a manual written by management. I mean, while there's nothing wrong about psuedo oral histories that lavish praise all over the franchise, after a while it gets to be a little too much and in the end doesn't result in a very serious book that says anything new about the team. I love the Yankees but after 40-50 pages of mash notes my eyes started to gloss over. If you follow the Yankees closely you've either read much of this before or read material so similar in other books that at times you'll swear you've already read this book before. Uncritical and in the end not as interesting books of this type should be. I shoulda waited for the paperback.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
