I am sure there are more
damnnnnnnn thats alot yo. SJS sir i got one in my house somewhere which i want to read but don't want to unless you blokes recommed it, so when i find it i'll give you fellas a buzz...
There is a 175 page book by Stephen Gibbs which is simply a bibliography of published work by or about Bradman - I'd be interested to know just how many entries there are but clearly it must run to several hundred - now they obviously aren't all full length books but still remarkable for one man to inspire so much literary output
I dont think actual books about Bradman (not just a chapter on Bradman in a book) will run into hundreds. I have, for example, ommitted books like From Bradman to So-and-so (a history of Australian Cricket etc.
In Don Bradman - Challenging the Myth, Brett Hutchins lists fifty-five books brought out between 1930 (Don Bradman's Book by Don Bradman) and 2001 (Bradman's Best by Perry). There have been a few books since then but not dozens. Even hutchins list includes the type, I have left out. Or the book, The Hand that bowled Bradman which is really the autobiography of a first class cricketer who once bowled Bradman in some match and uses this for his title. Not eligible as a Bradman book according to me.
I think total genuine Bradman books should be around sixty to seventy. Not more.
The various Padwick incarnations list 120 entries in total under Bradman in the Biographical sections
