Default Dick Tiger Books

I'd like some opinions please.
There are 2 Bks. on Tiger out there.
Dick Tiger by Damola Ifaturoti
Dick Tiger by Adeyinka Makinde.
I have the one by Makinde.
Has anyone read the one by Ifaturoti & if so is it worth buying at only 112 pages?

I read the Makinde book a couple of years back. I remember it being excellent but very dry. I don't think an opinion is offered in the entire book, it's a very factual telling.

I reccomend it but with the proviso that you have to be patient with it - there's plenty about the policial situation in Nigeria for example.

Yes I found the Makinde book the same way. Simply it was not a joy to read.
Thats why im wondering if the other book is worth the cash.

I really liked the Makinde one a great deal. I'm much more concerned about why there's no Monzon and nothing on Langford?

Agreed.
So many fighters that deserve to put into print.
