"The absorbing biography of...the man once heralded as 'baseball's greatest right-handed hitter.'" (Sports Illustrated)
"The long-overdue study of one of baseball's most important and most enigmatic figures....Anyone seriously interested in the history of baseball...will want to add this soundly researched and very readable volume to his library." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
It is up there for sports biographies. I learned a lot about Hornsby and was amazed to find out he was a total jerk.
This is comparable to other well written books about Walter Johnson, Ty Cobb, or Honus Wagner.
I thought the narrator did a great job being Hornsby.
Yes, but was unable to.
Not sure why some people scorched this book in their reviews. It was a solid job.
