During his nine-year tenure with the Dodgers, Ned Colletti had the highest winning percentage of any general manager in the National League. In this memoir, Colletti reflects on working for three of the top franchises in the sport, revealing the out-of-the-headlines machinations behind the trades, the hires and the deals. While frankly discussing the real brass tacks of some of the most pivotal decisions made in baseball history—leading to great success along with heartbreak and failure on the field—Colletti shares his personal recollections of Barry Bonds, Greg Maddux, Don Mattingly, Don Zimmer, Tommy Lasorda, Scott Boras, and Vin Scully.
