The GM: The Inside Story of a Dream Job and the Nightmares that Go with It

I don't read books for pleasure all that often. In order for me to make it through a book it has to be very good. This one was great.

The author Tom Callahan was granted full access to Ernie Arcossi's last season as Giants GM. This book is about the Ernie's past, the Giants in general, and the 2006 season. You get a great look at the kind of person that Ernie is, the great people that the Mara's are, what a snot Eli is, and how much Shockey loves the game of football.

As someone who will always have some connection to the Giants (my father and a brother are Giants fans), it was great being able to take a glimpse behind the curtain at the wizard. If you're a football fan, it's worth read. And if you're a Giants fan, it's required reading.
