Product description

Review

"One of the best baseball stories ever, told by one of the best baseball writers ever. It does not get any better than this." --George F. Will

"Few who have covered the game in any era can match Tom Verducci's combination of baseball insight and elegance as a writer. Those dual qualities make him the perfect guy to not only capture the experience of what the Cubs at long last achieved, but to explain the thinking and planning that led to last Fall's crescendo of emotions." --Bob Costas

"Verducci, a longtime baseball writer for Sports Illustrated, is perhaps the perfect scribe to tell this definitive tale, a generational talent who can talk numbers and remain awed at the game's beauties. In one moment he's describing player valuations, and in the next he's admiring a grand painting. And to fully understand a modern-day championship team, that's essential." --The Washington Post

"The Cubs Way is a lush accounting of one of the most thrilling championship runs in American sports history--by the numbers and by the personalities that made it happen." --The Wall Street Journal

"The Cubs' epic triumph almost demanded that Tom Verducci, arguably the best baseball writer of this generation, weigh in with his perspective. The longtime Sports Illustrated veteran delivers in a big way with unique analysis that takes a deep, deep dive in trying to explain the wizardry of Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer, Joe Maddon and the entire Cubs braintrust." --The Chicago Tribune

"A must-read for any Cubs fan." --SB Nation

"In Mr. Verducci's entertaining book, he notes that the 'construction of a championship team is granular' and the 'final picture is a Seurat painting' with 'many tiny dots of color' and 'millions of reasons and thousands of cascading events.' He's right: The artistic brush containing the power of positivity helped make the Chicago Cubs winners once more." --The Washington Times

Book Description

With inside access and reporting, Sports Illustrated senior baseball writer and Fox Sports analyst Tom Verducci reveals how Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon built, led, and inspired the Chicago Cubs team that broke the longest championship drought in sports, chronicling their epic journey to become World Series champions.
