Reading George Steinbrenner's biography by Bill Madden of The Daily News.  I shy away from sports book written by nearly illiterate newspaper writers, so I put this one off for a really long time, but Madden impresses here.  This is actually a great read and brings back all the infuriating shit that Steinbrenner did before he re-invented his legacy late in life.  Even if you lived through it the fist time, you'll still learn a lot of new and interesting tidbits.  Madden got access to hours of Gabe Paul's private tapes from his widow, and there's some gems in there.  

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
