"Armour and Levitt show us how the teams didn’t just rely on the players in the field but also on the team in the front office. It’s a must-own for those baseball fans interested in how the front office works." -- Daniel Solzman, Redbirdrants.com, May 31, 2015.


"This book is packed with similar anecdotes and insights. It entertains and informs. And while no book can provide a step-by-step guide that guarantees winning, it certainly demonstrates the common traits that successful organizations tend to have and how they've evolved over the years." -- Paul Hagen, mlb.com, May 12, 2015.


​"Armour and Levitt's book is an extremely exhaustive and still easily read survey of how front offices have evolved, changed and adapted to the changing conditions of the game. ... Much like Armour and Levit's previous collaboration Paths to Glory, this new book is a valued addition to the bookshelf, one that may remain there for years to come."  -- J. J. Cooper, Baseball America, May 8-22, 2015.
