Jennie Paul is the only daughter of Baseball Hall of Fame nominee, and former New York Yankees owner and President, Gabe Paul. An experienced sports reporter in her own right, Jennie is a keen observer whose unique view, combined with never-before seen excerpts from her father's diaries, gives a new perspective on the tumultuous world of 1970s Yankees baseball. Her struggle to find her place in that world - and in her father's life - played out on the field known as "The Bronx Zoo." The Yankee Princess is for every father who wants to be closer to his daughter, and for every daughter who lovingly tries to understand her father.

The Centennial Edition is a special gift-quality hardback book honoring the 100th anniversary of Gabe Paul's birth, and includes materials not found in the softback version.
