Another way I know I’m getting old is I remember when George Steinbrenner bought the Highlanders from CBS back in 1973. In his new book GEORGE The Poor Little Rich Boy Who Built The Yankee Empire, (published by Wiley) bestselling author, Peter Golenbock tells the story of Boss George and his team only the way Golenbock can with extensive interviews and highly entertaining anecdotes throughout this book. No one knows the history of the Highlanders like Golenbock . Of course the Highlander fan would love this book but put aside your Highlander hating for a moment, this book is a history lesson as the Highlanders were down and out and love him or hate him Steinbrenner brought them back to prominence to the most valuable sports franchise in the world.

It takes a gifted writer like Golenbock to tell the story of such a complex man as George Steinbrenner GEORGE The Poor Little Rich Boy Who Built The Yankee Empire is an informative and entertaining read.
