Going behind the scenes with Ozzie Guillen, baseball's most colorful and irrepressible manager, to reveal the hidden factors that create a winning teamWhen Ozzie Guillen opens his mouth, nobody knows what's going to come out. And that has made the manager of the Miami Marlins endlessly entertaining to legions of baseball fans. In language that is often as profane as it is colorful, he will lash out not only at his team's opponents but also at his own players, reporters, fans, and most of all, himself. He is always getting himself in hot water, and he loves every minute of it.Yet for all the antics and controversy, Guillen is also one of the game's best managers—a World Series champion and a perennial contender. This book opens the door on the secrets to his success.Ozzie's School of Management distills the ten commandments of managing, Guillen-style, which means no-holds-barred and leave your squeamishness at the door. The Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist Rick Morrissey, who built a strong rapport with Guillen during his eight years with the Chicago White Sox, takes us on a rollicking ride through Ozzie's world, shining a light on his sharp intellect, organizational insights, and changing moods, and showing that the most important part of managing occurs before the first pitch and after the last out.

As entertaining as the man himself.

If you are into Baseball and you are a fan of Ozzie Guillen then this is an excellent option for you. I was led to it in part by curiosity and in part by biography avarice but it didn't tick all of my boxes. If anything I have to say that Morrissey's book, although very well produced, is a little premature: the man still has a career. In that sense it fits into that bracket of autobiography that is a sensationalist bare-all and seems more of a psychoanalysis of Ozzie at times. It is a funny read though.
