Title of Review: "From Triumph To Tragedy, Back To Triumph"!

Ferguson Jenkin's new book, "Fergie:My Life From The Cubs to Cooperstown" truly invites the reader into his life, from his baseball career, to his personal tragedies of divorce, suicide of his fiancee, death of his daughter and mother, the story of his drug arrest, and much more.

This book has tons of great information, but it is very poorly written. The chapters are organized logically, but the content within the chapters is confusing. In one paragraph he will talk about an event with the Cubs, then he'll jump into a totally unrelated event in the next couple paragraphs before returning to the initial topic with the Cubs. The haphazard organization within the chapters made this book a struggle to get through instead of a joy to read.

Written in 2009 in time for the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, this is the start to "finish" story of a black Canadian from Ontario who chose baseball over basketball and hockey, and ended up with over 3,100 strikeouts for the Cubs, Rangers and Red Sox. Not only about baseball, but also the other trials and tragedies of his life in and out of sport.
The book reads like you're sitting at a bar having a beer listening to someone talk about their life. It's not Ball Four, but it's a good read
