Review:

Anyone who likes baseball will enjoy reading this book. (Sparky Anderson)

Impressive....Valuable....An often fascinating analysis of Cobb's personality. (The New York Times Book Review)

Crisply written, a splendid addition to the sports-biography shelf. (Chicago Sun-Times)

Now, thanks to...Charles Alexander, comes a biography of the 'Georgia Peach' that is carefully researched, crisply written and all too revealing. (San Francisco Chronicle)

No baseball fan will want to pass up this book....Alexander has performed that magical feat of creating Ty Cobb, warts and all....It's a wonderful, wonderful book. (Newsday)

Professor Alexander has...written the best book yet on Cobb. (Reviews in American History)

This is the best biography of Ty Cobb ever written. It is based on impeccable research and yet still reads like a novel. A fine book. (Lawrence Ritter, author of The Glory of Their Times)

What a wonderful book! It is both engaging social history and a wonderful yarn. (William E. Leuchtenburgh, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

A good picture of Cobb's winning ethic and of his place in the 'national pastime.' (Journal of American History)

A very good book, especially at integrating the life of Cobb with the wider spectrum of sports and American culture. (Kevin S. Fontenot, Tulane University)
