4.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, 3 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Cobb: a Biography (Paperback)
Unlike the contributer from Toronto, whose opinions on this book I absolutely agree with, I saw the film after first reading Al Stump's sensational article in True magazine "Ty Cobbs wild ten-month fight to live", reprinted in "The Greatest Baseball stories ever told" (Jeff Silverman/Lyons Press) which led to"Cobb". The benefit of a readers imagination complimenting a subsequent viewing of the film made for a truely thought provoking experience. We don't get much ML baseball news here in Wales and "Cobb" laid useful foundations regarding the game in its day and Cobb as an athlete and a person. I would recommend this to anyone who has not been brought up on baseball or who hasn't the advantage of parents/grandparent's memories and experience of the game, its community and attitudes at the time. Has anyone read and contrasted "Cobb" and Stump's 'official' biography on Cobb?
