No book has ever really gone behind the scenes to describe life with the Chicago Cubs, and why the franchise has taken the path it has over the last 10+ years. Entangled in Ivy breaks out from the pack to provide an insider's story of how the team works and how players, team executives, managers, coaches, and others interact and work out of public view.
