Tampa super-attorney Steve Yerrid, who called late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner a personal friend for three decades, used his unique access to his favorite team to interview current and past players in search of the secret to their inspiration. He then cleverly combined their words of wisdom with color and black & white images of them in action.

Whether you’re a fan of the damn Yankees or just interested in better understanding what motivates a winner, there is a lot to like in The Making of a Championship Heart. And it doesn’t hurt that Yerrid is pledging 25 percent of the net proceeds from sales of the book to pediatric cancer charities.
