About the Author

Award-winning author Kevin Cook hits the jackpot with the first major biography of a soon-to-be-famous American icon. Titanic Thompson: The Man Who Bet on Everything has been called “a rollicking, colorful, hilarious and ultimately moving account of an underground legend.”

A veteran sportswriter whose father was a pro athlete and gambler, Cook has written for Sports Illustrated, GQ, Playboy, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Journal, Details and many other magazines. He was a senior editor at SI and editor in chief of Golf Magazine before writing Tommy’s Honor, winner of the USGA’s Herbert Warren Wind Award as book of the year for 2007. The New York Times called Tommy’s Honor “delightful.” The Boston Globe described it as “exceptional,” and Newsday called it “an ace.” Booklist praised Tommy’s Honor as “not only one of sport’s great stories but a compelling saga of near-Homeric proportions.”Cook has hosted sports-talk shows for WFAN and Major League Baseball Radio, and appeared on ESPN and CNN.

Many thanks to Tom Cook for his great work on this website.
