Award-winning alumnus Tom Verducci's latest book was coauthored with three time MLB manager of the year Joe Maddon.

In "The Book of Joe: Trying Not to Suck at Baseball & Life," readers get access to the successful baseball lifer — 19 years in the majors and 15 years in the minor leagues before that — who is considered one of the most successful, most colorful and most quoted managers of the sport's modern era.

The book offeres insights into the game, including the tension between art and data, the changing role of managers as front offices gain power and what it's like to manage the modern player.
