Nick Tosches can be an acquired taste - and many people never acquire the taste. He overwrites, wanders well off subject, has highly subjective readings of his subjects (and that is being kind to him) and seems to love to wallow in his own seaminess and misery. Somehow, though, he keeps it in check here and his portrait of Liston, heavyweight chump and loser extraordinaire, works perfectly. His ripping apart of the autopsy results seems almost incontrovertible. All in all, a terrific work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I learned much about Liston
I really enjoyed the Devil and Sonny Liston. I learned quite a few things about the troubled man. I had no idea about his struggle with internal demons and sordid past. It was enjoyable to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
