really liked it

Pete Rose the one many compare to Ty Cobb as their intensity for the game of baseball was similar and unmatched by any others. The all time hit king of the MLB any true fan of Pete Rose needs to read this book it is great for anybody that is fond of Pete. Even though he is a nasty little jerk he is able to show the most respect to the common man as his on field persona doesn't define him as a man. Many of his lessons were taught to him as a Child by his father who was a great athlete who continued to play tackle football well into his 40's; he would run sprints home after bad games this type of mentality would be taught to Pete at a young age. After every little league game him and his dad would review the good and bad of the game and his father would always say if Pete went 3 for 5 in a game why didn't he go 4 for 5. Those type of things would turn Pete into the man he is today although he has had some slip ups such as the gambling scandal. This book was a great book for baseball fans but can get a little boring and you can become lost at some parts but if you're a Pete rose or baseball fan it is a must read.
