Sports Bio Recomendations.

Today, I bought this bio of Pete Maravich
and so far it's excellent. I'm also working my way through this bio of Sonny Liston
. They're both looks at sports figures who were extremely famous for a brief period and then faded from the public consciousness, yet seemed to define their epoch, since sports, like movies or popular music is a great prism through which to view the zietgeist of an era. Bith books are also extremely well written by professional authors, not hacks. Anybody have any other recommendations in the same vein?
