Blair does a decent job of chronicling the Jays since 1993, but the past twenty years have not provided much in the way of subject material to craft a book from. Personally I thought he did a good job breaking down the JP years, but more time should have been spent on Clemens and other events. Plus, by the conclusion the reader is sick of hearing about the jays-Marlins trade that was obviously tacked on after the book was already completed.
But overall it stands as a decent continuance to Stephen Brunt's diamond dreams, just don't anticipate anything earth-shattering.

4 decades of Blue Jay history is anything but and certainly fails to shed any light on the lows while seeming to concentrate on the 2 World Series win years, which while the focal point of most BJ fans, hardly tells the story of what has happened to the team and why management has failed so miserably to reproduce that winning combination since the highlight years of the early 90's. Blair needs to get closer to his subject!

I got this book from my local library, was really looking forward to reading it, as there has not been a good book about the Jays in recent years. That still holds true. This book is very heavy to discussing the Blue Jays two series winning years, and the past decade, while generally neglecting the rest of their history. At times, it is too much about baseball in Canada than about the Jays, Joey Votto and Justin Morneau are mentioned more than the entire 80's outfield of Barfield, Moseby, and Bell(Barfield and Moseby are mentioned once, in the same quote, and that is it. There is more about Ted Rogers and his life story than about 25 years of Blue Jays baseball. There are numerous factual errors, for example, Dave Winfield was 43 years old when he first signed with the Jays, but 41 years old when he won the World Series with the Jays, oops. Paul Molitor's contract worth was missed....by $18 million, this is only the beginning of the errors. It is not a terrible book, but I would not recommend it to anyone.

Let's be honest, few have written books chronicling the Blue Jays first 40 years. They are a team often overlooked. Blair does a good job of chronicling the team's ups and downs. He definitely takes a point of view from the GM. It is interesting and parts are enlightening. He addresses some worthwhile topics. It's a good read for new fans or old. This is by far the best book I have found covering the history of the Blue Jays. It does get a bit repetitive in parts. And, Blair was clearly expecting the 2013 Blue Jays to perform much better and thus have a larger audience to buy his book. Well, it's still worth the read. I hope he will next write about, "What went wrong with the blockbuster deal."

Covers the not-so-glory days well May 23 2013
By Baseball Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a "what happened to the Jays" book. The author has done a good job of relating events since the World Series years. Would have liked a few pictures in there, a little more about the pre-WS days, and a bit more about some players that I've asked myself, "what happened to so-so". Overall, a nice effort.
Misleading Title Jan. 27 2014
By Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book very much. Jeff Blair's writing is easy to digest, and his analysis of key events in Blue Jays history is well-developed. Unfortunately, the title of the book is misleading. Blair devotes much of the book to the past decade of Blue Jays baseball. Anyone looking for colorful anecdotes or insightful analysis of the Jays' origins as a franchise to their rise to prominence in the '80s and early '90s will be disappointed.
