This first book by best-selling author Peter Golenbock is the inside story of the legendary Yankee teams of the Mantle/Berra/Ford/Stengel era, which appeared in an amazing 14 of 16 World Series, winning nine of them. Each season is brought back to life in colorful detail through the memories and reflections of the players--great and ordinary--of those championship teams. From the Casey Stengel’s arrival, which shocked the team's demanding fans and the New York media, to the even more shocking five consecutive world series titles that followed; through the classic mid-fifties clashes with the Dodgers, plus two versus Henry Aaron and the Braves; to the arrival of Ralph Houk, loved by some, but not all, especially when he took over as GM and was no longer the players' best friend, and those last pennants and difficult World Series. The result of more than two years of research and more than 90 interviews, Dynasty is unlikely ever to be surpassed as a Yankees history for its thoroughness and insight, nor especially for its humor and humanity. Peter Golenbock is one of the true masters of the oral history, and Dynasty is a genuine tour-de-force. A must-read for all Yankee fans.
