"A must read for Yankee fans and Yankee haters alike. No team anywhere
has this kind of history and Harvey Frommer is the perfect tour guide for
a stroll down memory lane."

-- Len Berman, Broadcaster/Author

"I thought I knew a lot about the Yankees but I learned something
new on almost every page of this terrific and terrifically fun book."

-- Jonathan Eig, author Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig

“This brand new book by America’s Baseball Author is a MUST read!”
-- Seth Swirsky, author of Baseball Letters

"From the very first page it's all there: the big names; the great moments;
the thrill of pinstriped victory. Harvey Frommer has really outdone himself.
This book is a veritable feast to be savored by all Yankee fans."

-- Peter Golenbock, author of The Bronx Zoo, Number 1, Balls, and 7.

"It's all here. Everything you ever wanted to know about the most storied
sports franchise in American history. Even Red Sox fans should get in on this
so they'll know all about the enemy."

-- Dan Shaughnessy, author The Curse of the Bambino
Sports columnist/Associate Editor
Boston Globe

“Do you want to know about the history of baseball? Then start with the history
of the New York Yankees, and there is no better place to start then The Ultimate
Yankee Book. I guarantee you this, it’s the most valuable guide to the Bronx
Bombers Baseball Almanac will have in its research library."

– Sean Holtz Baseball Almanac (

"One of my favorite baseball authors, Harvey Frommer goes beyond the
statistics in his latest work, touching all the bases on nicknames, spring
training, and even retired numbers -- assuming the Yankees have anything
left to retire! It's a reference to treasure not only for fans of the Yanks but
for lovers of baseball history."

--Dan Schlossberg, Former AP sportswriter and author of 38 baseball books

"There are many books written about the New York Yankees and their illustrious history.
But now, for the first time, there is the "ultimate" book about the New York Yankees.
If you are looking for the book that covers everything Yankees, then "The Ultimate Yankee
Book" is the choice. No book covers the amount of information that "The Ultimate Yankee
Book" does. This is really the one-stop, has-it-all book that will give any Yankees fan
or baseball historian their entire fill of nothing but Yankees baseball. This is the
ultimate read and the must-have book for any baseball and Yankees literature collection.
Grab your copy today and begin learning about everything you could ever want to know about
the New York Yankees."

- Bradford H. Turnow, Owner -
