Review of Francona by Terry Francona

Francona: The Red Sox Years - Terry Francona, Dan Shaughnessy

I absolutely loved this book. I am a baseball guy (played and coached for most of my life) and a Red Sox fan, so this book is about as good as it gets for me. It terms of my enjoyment, this is a runaway 5 star read. Trying to be more objective, this is probably a 3 star read for anyone that lives outside of New England.

 

This book gives an inside look at the years that Terry Francona was the manager of the Red Sox. I loved relieving those magical seasons, and the stories from the clubhouse that I never knew were gems. I also loved Francona as a manager - his style and his ability to handle professional athletes was second to none. This is highly recommended to Red Sox fans. I can't believe I didn't read this years ago.
