review 1: I really enjoyed this book. This books is a great read for any sports fan. It tells the story of a team of misfits that worked together to bring home a Championship. It shows how playing for the name on the front of your jersey not the back can really come into play. The guys on this team were truly selfless and it led to success. It also talks about all of the blockbuster moves that the front office had to makes for this team to click. It really is a great book to read.
review 2: A great book for fans of the San Francisco Giants (or sports in general), this shows how a team has to make adjustments throughout the year to address weaknesses, replace injuries, and improve and adapt as individual players. Being a lifelong Giants fan, this book about the 2010 World
... more Series Championship was exquisitely special because of the wait involved – more than 40 years for me, and nearly 60 for the team – before the sweet joy of finally being able to say something other than “wait until next year” after the final game has been played.As a Giants follower, I was aware of most of the stories, although Baggerly has some inside information from being around the team behind the scenes that add a small bit to the well-known stories, but it's still fun to go back and re-read this, and I read it during the 2013 season when the Giants had a good early part of the season before faltering in June. less

Entertaining and about the Giants = 5 stars (I can be easy to please). Super quick and easy read.
There's no way to be objective about this. Is this the Greatest Story Ever Told? Fuck yeah.
I am currently enjoying this book a great deal.
Awesome look at a great team!
