This was a very good baseball bio. Never read the Al Stump Cobb bio, but this one by all accounts is probably more balanced. A great look at the personality of this crazy person. ( )

A very interesting look at one of baseball's greatest players. ( )

Being a very sound biography of a player who managed to be at one and the same time fiery and yet somehow enigmatic. There are plenty of biographies of Cobb, and this is best consulted in twain with the others, but it's arguably the best and it's an enjoyable read. ( )
