    1. Geoff says:

      This book does a disservice to the interesting stories and people involved in the Cubs historic season by being superficial, slapdash, poorly editied, and repetitive.

    2. Connie says:

      As a die hard, I really loved the story and reading about front office stories I never knew happened particularly what went wrong for so many years There were actual reasons for being bad over over, and the problems were in operations it wasn t just that the team sucked Bad ownership mismanagement It s sad than I realized But, good story aside, and we all know how it ends, I m rating it lower than I d like because I m picky about the writing voice Aw Kap So much repetition in the chapters, man [...]

    3. Heath Morber says:

      Fun read, but the amount of redundancies in the book were ridiculous Twenty pages of repeated facts and quotes could have been cut and it would have been a better product.

    4. Matt Monaghan says:

      Great history of how the Cubs became the world champs David Kaplan has done a wonderful job laying out how the Cubs became the world champs Unlike other books that only covered 2016 season, he goes way back to when the Cubs were still owned by the tribune, details how the rickets were able to purchase the team from sam zell, how they were successful in hiring Theo, Jed, Jason and joe Maddon, how they rebuilt a bad team thru good trades, an amazing rebuild of the farm system and a few good trades [...]

    5. Joseph Matuch says:

      There isn t much here that hasn t already been written, and poetically, in Tom Verducci s book.I skimmed much of this My biggest complaint is the repetition, especially of quotes There are several instances where you read the same thing within a 3 page span It s pretty choppy overall.If this is your first book on the 2016 Cubs, you ll probably enjoy it a little than I did If you ve already read a couple, you can pass on this one.

    6. Carolyn Leshyn says:

      Kaplan details the sale of the Cubs to the Ricketts family and their employing Epstein, Hoyer and Maddon to lead the players of the Chicago Cubs to a World Series Championship He changed the culture of the club and built the organization from the bottom up Nice background on how Tom Ricketts grew into owndership, especially with the help of Bud Selig.

    7. B. Cheng says:

      I m aware of a few other books that came out quickly and take a look at the Cubs historic victory last year, the drama behind it, and the process or plan that the Ricketts family and Theo put in place If you re a huge Cubs fan and want to relive the joy of last season, with a few insights here and there, this may be worth a quick read, but for anyone else, this doesn t offer much.

    8. Thomas P Brown says:

      If you are a Cubs fans or not.This is a must read book about how the current Cubs management built this team to win the championship Being a lifelong Red Sox fan, it was interesting to see how Theo built the Cubs organization up so that they could end their long World Series drought Congrats to all Cubbie fans.

    9. Bob says:

      Great book about the rebuilding of the Chicago Cubs Very many interesting aspects about the tab that I was not aware of Mr Kaplan does a very good job taking readers into the inside of the organization I enjoyed the book vey much.

    10. Brad Lyerla says:

      THE PLAN is a great companion to Tom Verducci s THE CUB s WAY I preferred Verducci s profiles of Tom Ricketts, Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon But Dave Kaplan is better at covering the Cubs news stories the rooftop dispute, the trade for Chapman, Tommy LaStella going AWOL, etc.

    11. pianogal says:

      I ve read a couple other books on this topic, and this one has been my least favorite I liked the angle, but the writer repeated himself a lot Like the exact phrase repeated I can forgive once or twice, but once I noticed it, I saw it everywhere Made the book a little tiresome to read.

    12. April Suter says:

      I still cry every time I see video or read descriptions of the Great Event Chicago Cubs Winning the World Series 2016 The author does an excellent job describing how the new owner took our beloved Cubbies and made them the winners we knew they could be.

    13. Lance says:

      And now for something completely differentAs a lifelong Cubs fan becoming a champion was a mind bending change in perspective This book shares insight into the men that charged the course on the Cubs championship journey.

    14. Greg says:

      Some great stories and insight into the Chicago Cubs, but the writing is brutal constantly repeating itself and making the same point over and over again

    15. Joe says:

      Had this one not been about the Cubs, I would have stopped reading It s basically a collection of quotes I m disappointed.
