George : the poor little rich boy who built the Yankee empire by Peter Golenbock ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For 34 years, he berated his players and tormented Yankees managers and employees. He played fast and loose with the rules, and twice could have gone to jail. He was banned from baseball for life--but was allowed back. Yet George Steinbrenner also built the New York Yankees from a mediocre team into the greatest sports franchise in America. Now acclaimed sportswriter Peter Golenbock draws on more than a hundred interviews to tell the story of "The Boss," from his Midwestern childhood and family shipping business background through his decades-long ownership of the Yankees. He gets inside the countless manager hirings and firings (and sometimes rehirings) from Billy Martin to Joe Torre, the legendary feuds and hard feelings, and the ever-spiraling players' salaries, as well as the astute business deals that transformed the Yankees from a $10 million franchise into a $1 billion powerhouse.--From publisher description
Driven : from homeless to hero, my journeys on and off Lambeau Field by Donald Driver ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The legendary NFL receiver, all-time receptions and yards leader for the Green Bay Packers, and Dancing with the Stars champion looks back on his life and career. Now, in his memoir, Driver recalls what it was like to go from living in a U-Haul trailer with his mom on the streets of Houston to earning a spot on the Packers roster and becoming one of Brett Favre's favorite targets on the way to football stardom. He takes you inside the locker room with legends such as Favre and Reggie White, and recalls his more recent roles as a veteran leader for stars like Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings during the 2010 Super Bowl season and as a Dancing with the Stars winner. A seventh-round draft pick in 1999, Donald Driver was given little chance of making the Packers roster, much less of becoming a 1,000-yard receiver, a beloved icon for one of the NFL's most storied franchises, and a Super Bowl champion. But in a life of adversity, Driver has overcome obstacle after obstacle and has become one of the most popular players in the NFL"--
