It didn't feel like a book, but rather a night sitting drinking with a new friend listening to their stories. The inside personal look at boxing and sportscasting was a wonderful trip through a world that the fan and spectator doesn't get to see or experience. A trip between the ropes, into the locker room and behind the door of the training gym. While I've been never been much more than a casual boxing fan, aware of the 'big' stories, but not the inner drama. This reignited my interest in the sport, its personalities and its history. Thanks for the virtual "night out" Al!
None that I've read recently come to mind.
His passion, his authenticity, his vulnerability all added to the experience of sharing the book with him.
If I was reading the physical book, rather than listening to the audio book (an experience I'm not particularly familiar with), I think this would be a book I would find myself reading long after my bedtime. I'd be forcing myself to stop for the night to get a little sleep instead of reading.
