A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“Inside the Empire gives baseball fans a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the 2018 New York Yankees season. But more than just a clubhouse diary, the book is dead-on in its depiction of a general manager’s daily life and the many decisions that go into building a playoff team. Bob Klapisch and Paul Solotaroff’s combined experience and engaging writing style make this book a fantastic read for anyone who follows the game.”
—Billy Beane, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations, Oakland Athletics

"The caps and jerseys never change, but these aren’t the same old Yankees. With unprecedented access and penetrating insights, Inside The Empire illuminates the reimagined Bronx Bombers – Brian Cashman’s smarter, sleeker operation that just might dominate the game, if only the hated Red Sox didn’t do it even better. You might think you know these Yankees, but with Bob Klapisch and Paul Solotaroff as your tour guides, you’re in for a lot of surprises, and a rollicking fun read."
—Tyler Kepner, National Baseball Writer for The New York Times
