About the Author:

Donald McRae is the acclaimed author of five nonfiction books, including Every Second Counts: The Race to Transplant the First Human Heart and Heroes Without a Country: America's Betrayal of Joe Louis and Jesse Owens. He is the only writer to have won the William Hill UK Sports Book of the Year Award twice. In 2005 he was named Feature Writer of the Year for his work in The Guardian. McRae lives near London with his family.

Review:

...engaging and sympathetically rendered... picaresque in form, taking the reader ringside to vividly rendered, in several cases graphically brutal, matches... McRae brings to the highly charged, obsessive world of professional boxing a novelist's eye and ear for revealing detail and convincingly recalled dialogue. This is an impassioned book.... an immensely readable book that anyone with an interest in boxing will want to own. -- The Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review, Joyce Carol Oates
