Liked this book. I read this as an avid sports lover and someone who enjoys watching baseball though as a Royals fan and too young to be part of a winning tradition I'm on the opposite spectrum of Yankee fans. I despise the Yankees but have to admire the joy Yankee fans get to experience year in and year out. I was hoping to get a little more juice on some of the players as you left realizing two things you knew prior to reading the book; Derek Jeter is good and Alex Rodriguez is bad.

Fans of baseball, especially if you follow a team in the AL East, will enjoy this book. Great snapshot of the Yankees, the evolution of the championship teams, and how that mirrored the evolution in baseball (moneyball, changing GMs, steroid era, etc.) Verducci has some good zingers in there, too.
