Reviews
"I feel that my 1998 team was the best of all-time. After a tough opening week, I managed a team that wasn't going to be denied following a disappointing ending in 1997. It was enjoyable to revisit that season with Jack Curry. In these pages, Jack reminds everyone what made that team so special."--Joe Torre, Hall of Famer and Yankees' manager for four World Series titles
"With fresh, insightful interviews of all the key characters and keen-eyed reporting, Jack Curry, like the 1998 Yankees, delivers one win after another. His book accomplishes a rare double play by bringing new perspective about a well-chronicled team while also unearthing never-before-told stories from that historic season. Consider this the 126th victory of that championship campaign."--Joel Sherman, New York Post baseball columnist and MLB Network insider
"I don't think there's such a thing as a perfect team, but I do think the 1998 Yankees were a perfectly constructed team. Everyone knew his role and excelled at it. We had confidence in each other's abilities to perform. Jack Curry covered that team's journey and he does an amazing job of telling the tales of that phenomenal group. It was a great team back then and this is a great book now."--David Cone, Five-time World Series Champion
"Are the 1998 Yankees the best baseball team ever? The question itself invites debate. What is beyond debate is that the '98 Yanks are on the short list of teams with a legitimate claim to that distinction. A claim for which Jack Curry, in colorful and telling details, makes a compelling case."--Bob Costas, Hall of Fame Broadcaster
"I highly recommend pre ordering this book!! I competed against this tough team out on the field but Jack Curry took me into their clubhouse and showed me why they were truly great!! I could not put the book down!"--John Flaherty, 14-year major league veteran and YES Network broadcaster
"Curry is strong on personality profiles, and it's clear that he's spent a lot of time in the dugout and locker room... Yankees fans will enjoy his paean."--Kirkus Reviews
