"In Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, and Pete Rose, the Cincinnati Reds boasted some of the biggest stars of the 1970s. But the Big Red Machine was a true team effort, and this fascinating book gets to the essence of the Machine-and its back-to-back World Series triumphs-by examining even its most minute components. A superbly in-depth look at one of the greatest teams of all time, this is essential reading for any baseball fan."-Dan Epstein, author of Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride through Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s
