I had absolutely no intention of reading Olney's book about the Yankees and their crumpled dynasty. Actually the book was basically about Game 7 2001 but as it went inning by inning, it gave an in depth look at many of the players, coaches, etc.
I don't think there was anything terribly revealing (there were some good stories that I had not heard, but much of it was stuff we all saw and probably remember) and I probably would have not been able to stomach it if the Red Sox were not the World Champions. In fact, there is no way in hell I would have read it. That being said, it was interesting and entertaining. Olney lays some serious smack down on Steinbrenner, which of course never gets old.
