9780071628471: My View from the Corner: A Life in Boxing (NTC Self-Help)

Boxing's greatest trainer reveals all

"The book is written in a highly conversational tone, and by the end the reader will know precisely what it is like to listen to the Bill Walsh of boxing hold court on the exotic art of the cornerman."
--New York Times Book Review

"[H]ere's one for the fans: an as-close-up-as-you-can-get view of boxing's biggest, baddest personalities and poundings."
-Men's Journal

"The teaming of esteemed boxing trainer Angelo Dundee and Bert Randolph Sugar, perhaps the best boxing writer around, produces a lively and insightful look at professional boxing in the second half of the 20th century... His fascinating portraits of Ali, Leonard and Foreman make this a terrific read."
--Library Journal

"This book's appeal lies in Dundee's colorful and punchy personality, as he enlivens the prose with entertaining, Yogi Berra-like jokes, tautologies and euphemisms. It's no surprise that Dundee helped Ali develop his famous rhymes."
--Publishers Weekly

Angelo Dundee was named Manager of the Year by the Boxing Writers Association in 1968 and 1979. In 1994 he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He continues to train boxers and has acted as ringside commentator for many televised fights.

Bert Randolph Sugar is the most recognized and well-known boxing writer in history. The former editor of Ring Magazine and Boxing Illustrated and publisher of Fight Game magazine, he has written dozens of books on boxing and is a regular ESPN sports analyst.

"The book is written in a highly conversational tone, and by the end the reader will know precisely what it is like to listen to the Bill Walsh of boxing hold court on the exotic art of the cornerman."
--New York Times Book Review

"Nobody in boxing has more or better stories."
--Dave Anderson, New York Times

"For fight fans this is peaches and cream. Read it and see for yourself."
--Bill Gallo, New York Daily News

"[H]ere's one for the fans: an as-close-up-as-you-can-get view of boxing's biggest, baddest personalities and poundings."

His fascinating portraits of Ali, Leonard and Foreman make this a terrific read."
--Library Journal

"Versatile boxing writer Bert Randolph Sugar and Angelo Dundee have put together a story that has the crispness of a Leonard jab and the bombast of an Ali news conference-snappy, brassy and sarcastic. It's a powerful tale, with a few Berra-isms thrown in for good measure."
--Tampa Tribune

"This book's appeal lies in Dundee's colorful and punchy personality, as he enlivens the prose with entertaining, Yogi Berra-like jokes, tautologies and euphemisms. It's no surprise that Dundee helped Ali develop his famous rhymes."
--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

ANGELO DUNDEE has managed 15 world boxing champions, among them Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, and George Foreman. He was named Manager of the Year twice the Boxing Writers Association of America (1968 and 1979), and was enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994. Enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994, Dundee still continues to train fighters. He even trained Russell Crowe for his part in Cinderella Man, a film in which Dundee was cast as, you guessed it, a cornerman.

BERT SUGAR with his trademark fedora and eternally billowing cigar, is perhaps the most recognizable and well-known boxing writer in history. As the long-time editor of The Ring Magazine, Boxing Illustrated, and later the publisher of Fight Game magazine, with literally dozens of books on the subject to his credit (he has officially written or co-written 83 books). He is currently the co-host of ESPN Classic's Ringside.
