What the Critics Say

"The quintessential novel of boxing and corruption." (USA Today)

"The book will stand not only as the novel about boxing but also as a book that indirectly tells more about civilization than do most books about civilization itself." (Arthur Miller)

"Brilliant, witty, and amusing - the best book on fighting that I have read." (Gene Tunney)
