  • Best if used by...

    I just finished reading Why Die? Can anyone tell me where I can get some Percy Cerutty breakfast cereal?

    I have two books by Cerutty and one by Elliott, but not "Why Die".

    How is it?

      "Why Die?" is Graem Sims' biography of Percy Cerutty; it is also the title of Percy's unfinished seventh work. Depending on what you have already read by/about Percy, there may not be much that is new here. Many passages seem "lifted" right out of Elliott's "The Golden Mile." However, it does provide some info about the lesser-known periods of his life and is a pretty good read.

      As for the breakfast cereal, why not just make your own?

        A little 30-page pamphlet that I believe was called "Running With Cerutty" (the paper cover has disappeared) was my inspiration as a youth. Is this one of the publications you're referring to?

          I usually love these kinds of books (historical biography), but this one I thought was a mostly bland book with a few good parts, mostly involving the Games and the athletes (Elliot, Landy, et al).
          I did not think it was worth the expensive price for a soft cover, 300+ pages or not.
          Sorry. Maybe others feel differently?
