When I bought this book for a buck at a book fair I didn't realize it was by a New York Post writer. If I did, I would have put it back in the pile. This book goes all over the place talking about a lot of the players on the 2006 New York Yankees, but doesn't really talk about the season that much at all. Kind of reads like a tabloid book.

An ok depiction of the 2006 Yankees. Its nothing special though. I have read a bunch of these types and this just doesn't rank up there with Olney or some of the others.
