feeding the monster is an interesting and detailed look at the recent history of the boston red sox. mnookin starts out with a relatively succinct history of the sox before the team was purchased by out of towners in 1999 and then nicely chronicles the handful of years that lead up to the hometeam finally winning the world series. there are details about how the boston sports media interacts with the team and insights from the clubhouse both before, during, and after the 2004 title run. there are new stories and it was generally worth my time, but i would only confidently recommend the book to moderately (at least) fanatical fans of the red sox.
