Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A riveting look at what is really said and done behind closed doors with the New York Yankees, the most famous and wealthiest sports franchise in the world

 
Using the 2018 baseball season as the backdrop, Inside the Empire gives readers the real, unvarnished “straight-from-the-gut” truth from Brian Cashman, Aaron Boone, Giancarlo Stanton, C.C. Sabathia—even Hal Steinbrenner and Randy Levine—and many more.
 
This is baseball’s version of HBO’s award-winning NFL series “Hard Knocks.” Klapisch and Solotaroff take you deep into the Yankees clubhouse, their dugout, and the front office and pull back the curtain so that every fan can see what really goes on.

Bottom line? You may think you know everything about the storied franchise of the New York Yankees and what makes them tick. But Inside the Empire will set the record straight, and drop bombshells about iconic figures along the way. There’s never been a baseball book quite like it.

PAUL SOLOTAROFF is a veteran feature writer at Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal magazines. An investigative journalist whose fixed beat is social justice, he helped break the NFL concussion scandal, reported the horror-show conditions at Walter Reed Hospital, and wrote a series of stories that helped free innocent men who were doing life without parole in state prisons. Winner of two Genesis Awards and a National Press Club Award, he is a Pulitzer Prize and National Magazine Award finalist, as well as the best-selling author of three previous books. He lives in Nyack, NY, with his wife Cynthia, who leaves the room to preserve her hearing and dignity when he watches the Yankees.
 
PAUL SOLOTAROFF has been a senior writer at Rolling Stone for twenty-five years (and at Men’s Journal for almost twenty). He covered the NFL concussion scandal, including the Aaron Hernandez story, was the first to report the horror-show conditions at Walter Reade Hospital, and has written a series of stories that helped free innocent men who were doing life without parole in state prisons. Winner of two Genesis Awards and more than a half-dozen selections to the Best American Sports Writing anthologies, Solotaroff is a Pulitzer Prize and National Magazine Award finalist. Six of his earlier stories were optioned for TV dramas or films, including “Original Gangster,” “The Fixer,” “Living the Vida Macho,” “Not Guilty,” and “The Gangster in the Huddle.” This year, four of his stories will be reborn as TV series or prestige documentaries on Netflix, Showtime, the USA network, and Facebook View.
