4.0 out of 5 stars Was it proof read?, 10 Jan. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live Fast, Die Young the Life and Times of Harry Greb (Hardcover)
This is a large book with plenty of content covering all aspects of Greb's life and career. Anyone familiar with the author over the years through internet boxing forums will know he has a passion for the subject. There is also a wealth of pictures throughout, placed with relevance as the story unfolds (though some are very poor quality). However, the downside to the book for me is the writing style. It has a very simplistic prose and is riddled with grammatical errors from start to finish and I have to question whether the book was proof read before publication.

I didn't notice many errors. Also, I didn't read it for style, I read it for content. With the amount of information in this book, the simple (and very readable) style makes it easy to follow in my opinion.
