Reviews

Fair, honest and insightful throughout . . . The book is a compelling look at the Indians' organizational thought process in what has become a challenging baseball market.--Anthony Castrovince"MLB.com" (06/27/2006)
There's enough new stuff in "Dealing" that even diehard fans will learn something. The days of the sellout streak are over, and it's often painful to read why . . . Rebuilding a baseball team is no easy task, and the Indians and Shapiro did it quicker than most. This is the story of how, and it's a pretty good one.--Jason A. Kline"News-Journal" (06/04/2006)
Pluto's surprisingly frank interviews with Shapiro, former manager Mike Hargrove, Indians president Paul Dolan and current manager Eric Wedge provide a fascinating glimpse into the gritty business of running a competitive big league club.--Jim Vickers"Cleveland Magazine" (05/01/2006)
For Tribe fans and serious baseball fans who are intrigued by the business side of the game, the book is a joy. Indians' officials reveal their reasons for all the significant trades, free-agent signings and other baseball decisions of the past five years.--Jerry Roche"Smart Business Network" (08/01/2006)
It goes to a few places where "Moneyball" and Bob Costas have gone, but really, it's almost the bookend for "Weaver on Strategy." With Weaver, [Pluto] covered the on-the-field stuff, and here it's behind-the-scenes. It teaches responsibility in a game where I don't even want to think about the absurdity of the salaries.--Mark Zimmerman"WCRF FM Radio" (05/30/2006)
