“Narrator Jeff Gurner offers a steady hand throughout a collaboration that has no dull moments…Red Sox fans will enjoy the stories behind some of their team’s greatest years. Cleveland Indians fans will love the wonderful insights into their first-year manager. And Gurner’s narration will help draw in any person interested in what a manager endures – on and off the field”. – AudioFile Magazine
“Even baseball fans who loathe the Boston Red Sox will find it tough to root against former manager Francona… [Gurner’s] reading keeps the narrative moving forward, and Francona’s story is compelling. All in all, a solid effort that should generate strong demand from baseball fans.” – Booklist
