Titanic Thompson - floats my boat
17 February 2012
Larger than Life - you bet! As they say the truth is often stranger than fiction, but this chap appears to have packed more into his life than the rest of us put together. A well written tbiography which roles along at a super pace, and grips from beginning to end. Perfect anytime read

This true story reads like a fast paced fictional novel and takes you to a time and place in recent American history that excites anyone who has ever placed a bet. The fact that it is a true story about a unique guy makes it all the more amazing. I am 54 years of age and cannot believe I had never heard of "Ti" before especially as his life interacted with so many famous and infamous people as recently as the 1970s. A truly wonderful story and after finishing it I miss Ti and the adventure he takes the reader on. Buy it, read it !
