Annotation:
Sports Illustrated reporter Peter Golenbock has been the co-author on a number of memoirs written by prominent members of the New York Yankees organization, including NUMBER ONE with Billy Martin and THE BRONX ZOO with Sparky Lyle. But Golenbock is on his own here, as he presents the most comprehensive biography yet of the most colossal (and controversial) figure in the team's recent history, owner George Steinbrenner. Golenbock depicts Steinbrenner's modest Midwest childhood and his ascension through the shipping industry, before focusing primarily on George's turbulent and triumphant years as the most notorious owner in sports. From Reggie Jackson and Billy Martin to Alex Rodriguez and Joe Torre, all of George's love/hate relationships with his million-dollar "employees" are examined in-depth, complete with many outrageous anecdotes about the owner's wild temper. But these incidents are balanced with a concise analysis of Steinbrenner's ingenious business acumen, which has transformed the Yankees from a team worth ten million dollars into a billion dollar sports franchise.
