“A fast and engaging read . . . While Sheffield riffs on issues from his name being linked to the BALCO steroids scandal . . . to racism in Major League baseball . . . he saves some of his best cuts for the Yankees organization.”
“With a pen as punishing as his bat and as provocative as its proprietor, [Sheffield is] uniquely suited to serve as a tour guide through the good, the bad, and the steroid that is modern Major League baseball.”
“Gary Sheffield has always been one of my favorite baseball players. Now I know why after reading Inside Power. His courage, conviction, and commitment are contagious.”
—Tavis Smiley, author and television and radio show host
“Gary Sheffield, passionate, blunt, and opinionated, is a smart black man who always wants to know `why.’ ‘Why are some owners so controlling or inept?’ ‘Why is love so hard to find?’ ‘Why are fewer and fewer blacks playing major league baseball?’ I love Sheff as a player. Having read Inside Power, I respect him even more as a man.”
—Peter Golenbock, author of Dynasty and co-author of The Bronx Zoo
