LAT Reviews Torre's Alleged Yankees "Tell-All" Book

I'm pretty sure I don't want to read it, mainly because I found Ball Four tedious and never did finish it, but the Times has reviewed Joe Torre's and Tom Verducci's new book (both get a byline), The Yankee Years. Excerpt:
... it's fitting that Torre left the Yankees after the 2007 season; it was time to make a change. He himself admits this, noting that once the decision had been made, he was struck by a profound "feeling of relief."

And yet, "The Yankee Years" is not a bitter book, despite what early media reports have claimed.

It is, instead, the consummate insider's view of what may be the last great dynasty in baseball history, a team whose nine-year run from 1996 to 2004 was so unbelievable -- seven League Championship Series appearances, six American League pennants and four World Series titles, including three in a row -- that it now feels, to the true believers anyway, like something of a fairy tale.
