    Story
    (35)

    As a boy in the 1890s he went looking for thrills in a rural Georgia that still burned with humiliation from the Civil War. As an old man in the 1960s he dared death, picked fights, refused to take his medicine, and drove off all his friends and admirers. He went to his deathbed alone, clutching a loaded pistol and a bag containing millions of dollars worth of cash and securities. During the years in between, he became, according to Al Stump, "the most shrewd, inventive, lurid, detested, mysterious, and superb of all baseball players." He was Ty Cobb. In Cobb, Stump tells how he was given a fascinating window into the Georgia Peach's life and times when the dying Cobb hired him in 1960 to ghostwrite his autobiography.

    John says: "What a man -- what a book!"
    "Great bio about a great player."
    Overall

    Fast paced, lot of fun, lot of facts. Very good narrator, he grows on you, give it a few minutes. There are a few spots where they read several pages of stats and that gets to be kind of a pain, but it's only a few minutes here and there. Well worth the time and money. Just as good or better than the Ted Williams bio.
