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)
