Book canceled 24 April 2013
By Andrew Workman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was excited about this book and surprised to see, not long after it was supposed to be released, that it was "out of print". I spoke to someone at Sky Horse Publishing who informed me that this book was "canceled". I hope another publisher picks it up. I met Freddie Roach and talked to him about this book. He told me that the co-author's home burned down while it was being written and the transcript of the book was saved from his burning home. I don't know if this had anything to do with the book being "canceled".
