"In rich detail, Joel Sherman examines the architecture of a modern dynasty: the art, the science, and yes, sometimes the amazing luck. The ’96 Yankees, rife with characters and comebacks, provide fertile ground for Sherman’s sharp reportorial skills."—Tom Verducci, Sports Illustrated
"Sherman’s fly-on-the-wall familiarity with his subject results in countless revelations, many of which will surprise even hard-core Yankees fans."—Chad Finn, Boston Globe
"A superb account of the making of a champion, with inside info about Joe Torre, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and many behind-the-scenes players. It’s the type of info you don’t see in most baseball books."—Jon Heyman, Newsday.com
