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.
