I bought this book for my brother's 61st birthday.
PenniJ
This is the best of the handful of Yankee Stadium books that came out in 2008 -- the Yankees' swansong season in the Babe's house.

He's a diehard Yankees fan and absolutely loved it!

I viewed all the various books commemorating Yankee Stadium (there's four) and this one is the best by far. It's a coffee table book with extraordinary photos, some I've never seen elsewhere. Not only are the 200 or so photos outstanding, there are about 50 chapters with great historical facts, figures and wonderful baseball writing. The real highlight of this book, however is the DVD. It's an hour long and narrated by Reggie Jackson. Talk about learning and enjoying a new aspect of an old thing (the Stadium), that's the DVD's strength. There's rare moments with Casey Stengel, the Babe, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle. Every Yankee fan deserves to have this book.

This is the best of the handful of Yankee Stadium books that came out in 2008 -- the Yankees' swansong season in the Babe's house. It's a treasure chest of the 50 or so greatest moments in Yankee Stadium history, from Ruth's christening blast in 1923 to Joe Louis' kayo of Max Schmeling to the heroics of Reggie, Wells, Boone, and Jeter. Besides the stories, the book includes great photos and special commentary from many Yankee greats. The book's accompanying DVD, The Golden Age of Yankee Stadium, is a terrific bonus. Narrator Reggie Jackson is earnestly nostalgic as he relives the magical days of Yankee Stadium, from the 1920s to the '60s. Includes a lot of cool footage that probably very few people have ever seen before. A wonderful stroll into the past....

I heartily second what Kristie said here. The DVD included with this book is worth the price of admission to a luxury box. Mel Allen's World Series recaps are remarkable -- the film editing is much better than I remember. These aren't just the clips we've seen for years. These show entire at-bats. I especially loved the shot of Dodger Eddie Miksis running all over the Yankee Stadium outfield trying to track down a fly ball. And the Pope, Billy Graham and Joe Louis are here, too. Wonderful.

I bought this book for my brother's 61st birthday. Having grown up 40 minutes away from Yankee Stadium, flipping through this book brought back alot of wonderful memories for me (it was the only time our mother allowed us to eat hot dogs!), and my brother just loved it. It comes with a DVD narrated by Reggie Jackson, the book is loaded with fabulous pictures and interesting stats. Highly recommended.

I bought this book for my husband who is a Yankee fan since his childhood, he absolutely loved it!! Not being a reader of books, I was really amazed at the amount of time he spent pouring over every page! A fantastic buy!

There are a lot of "tribute" books, DVD's, and so forth this year because of the "new" Yankee Stadium that will open in 2009 -- and this one is one of the best. The DVD that comes with the book is good, and it is full of great photos and anecdotes about Yankee Stadium history. If you like the stats and trivia that are inherent in these types of books, there is also another Yankees book out right now that fits that bill perfectly: New York Yankees: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports (Sports by the Numbers) -- and if you like sticking with the retrospectives on the stadium, I really enjoyed this book as well: Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective although as is usually the case with the coffee table books, they are more expensive.
