A SPORTS ICON. AN INFAMOUS SCANDAL. THE TRUE STORY—LIKE YOU’VE NEVER READ IT BEFORE.
Pete Rose is a baseball legend. He compiled more hits than anyone in the history of the game—a record that remains unbroken—and for decades captured the imagination of a nation. He was the American dream personified. Until 1989, when a sensational scandal brought him crashing down and forever changed the game. Drawing on first-hand interviews with Pete himself, as well as FBI archives, court records, press coverage, and more than 150 hours of interviews with the people who knew Pete best, Keith O’Brien presents the definitive telling of Pete Rose’s story as well as a fascinating cultural portrait of baseball, Cincinnati, and America itself at a time when the biggest star was also the most flawed.
