Book is an in depth look at an icon of baseball and a disfunctional disfunctional reulting from a parent who was dismissive and "never there".
Ted, as depicted in the lengthy study, reflects the extreme as a driven individual to be perfect in his own view and expecting the world to conform to his self image of himself. The book depicts the sad relationship with his multi women including three failed marriages and the disaster at the end of his life with the ridiculous freezing of his head and torso. However all of his achievements in the baseball world were remarkable and depicted in the details of his career as were his varied talents serving in two wars.
As a fan of Williams and living in the era of the 40's and 50's baseball idols it was a well studied story and kept my attention in spite of the length of the volume.
