This book was excerpted as a cover story in Sports Illustrated in 1986. I bought it then, loved it, and loaned my copy to somebody who never returned it. I recently bought this paperback edition and reread it. The book is every bit as terrific as I remembered. Chris Mead has done an astonishing job of reconstructing history and of reminding Americans just how different the world was in the 1930s and 1940s. This is a work of discernment and sensitivity -- but it's also an exciting page turner, even if you know how the story comes out. Buy it, read it, loan it to your friends -- but be sure they give it back!
well written bio of the great boxer--possibly the greatest heavyweight of all time---some of the photos included should have been edited better
an easy to read format and this soft cover version is very portable
