What People are Saying About This

Bill James

Bill James

It's wonderful to read a book by someone who really knows something about the great teams, knows things that I don't know, knows even important things that I didn't know. This is the book that everybody else who writes about great teams, for the next 30 years, will have to begin by reading, just so they know what they're talking about.

Baseball teams thrive on arguments. This book will start enough of them to keep the Hot Stove League in session all year long.

Few athletes are part of one baseball dynasty. I was fortunate enough to be part of two. This book captures the unique characteristics that make great teams great.
