    Best of the Best

    This is a wonderful history of the New York Yankees. Actually it is the most complete history I've ever read, and I've read a lot. The writing is interesting and well-researched and the photographs are, well, classic. If you are a Yankee fan, you will want to get this for your Library. You will go through it over and over. My 84 year old dad was thrilled with this book and glad to have his own copy, as I didn't like to share!
