He was no Saint but this is a great story about a bye gone time in america. If you play cards, pool or golf this is a book for you.

This book is very well written and tells an educational and wisdom filled story about one of the most unique men ever. Highly recommend to any intellectually curious readers who enjoy history, hustling, and hospitality (or lack there of).
Would you listen to Titanic Thompson again? Why?
Yes and I have several times now as it is just a great listen, unbelievable character and person, not always legit, but a remarkable story of one mans fight against the odds.
What other book might you compare Titanic Thompson to, and why?
It is one of those books that you listen to and think that this would make a great film!
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The court case against him for murder...
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
you could not make this up!
Any additional comments?
I'm sure that at some stage you think hang on this is ridiculous, how can he have done that, especially the golf bets that he took on. I really enjoyed the listen, great stories, massive bets, he was either very good at what he done or bonkers!
