    I found this book disappointing. I expected a book full of scandels but he seems to think of himself as a 'choir boy'. He claims innocence to his reputation as a bad guy. I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in between what has been written about him and his version of his life. He hardly mentioned his family and glossed over the death of his father with one sentence. Part of the book was pure boring and parts were good. It does encourage me to read other books about his life that may not gloss ove [...]

    Probably full of lies.

    Thanks to my brother-in-law Steve Wilmoth, I managed to read the memoir that Ty Cobb penned shortly before his death in 1961. I really enjoyed his tips on successful hitting, baserunning, and fielding, as well as his thoughts on how the game by the mid-twentieth century had diverged from what he calls "authentic baseball." He believed that players had become so focused on hitting home runs that they shortchanged the finer elements of the game, like sacrifices, base stealing, and sliding. Cobb's [...]

    Tyrus Raymond Cobb was quite a guy. When he wasn't busy rewriting Baseball's nascent record books, he spent his spare time fighting groups of armed assailants, racing faster than professional racecar drivers, bringing down record bags of birds and bears, and out-investing millionaires. In reading this book, I received the impression that he single-handedly won the Great War for the Allies, and I have no doubt that he would have invented movable type, had not Gutenberg and some "Chinamen" (whom w [...]

    The greatest reason for reading a book by Ty Cobb was to get another perspective of a man whom most refer to as despicable. A great ballplayer, but failure as a human - that seemed to be the common judgment about him. There is plenty of violence in the book - fistfights, etc. with those whom he played with and otherwise associated with. He staunchly defends himself, and claims innocence, if not humility. But maybe that is it - always defending himself, responding to violence with more violence. [...]

    You wouldn't have much difficulty in claiming that Ty Cobb was the greatest baseball player of all time. In this autobiography, Cobb touches on some points in his life but the focus is on his livelihood. For those who are only casual fans of the game or not players, Cobb's book would be to them a dull exercise in the minutia of the game. To true fans and players however, this book is vitally essential (Especially for players). This should sit upon every ball player's shelf with copious amounts o [...]

    Cobb held nothing back in the way he played, or lived. He seems to have held little back in this book as well, which is what makes it so fascinating.I am just getting interested in baseball history and have heard a lot of the stories about what a terrible person Cobb was, so I thought it would be interesting to hear what he had to say in his own defense. This book presents a very complex character - one who is certainly eloquent and undeniably intelligent, but with an ego that was insatiable and [...]
