If you purchase this book don't as I did buy Jack Dempsey by Randy Roberts as the Tunney book covers alot on Dempsey plus what there was to know about Tunney. They are both good books but much is repeated, my preference is the Tunney book.

This is a worthwhile read - well written and detailed.Provides a good insight into boxing in the 1920's/30's and contains interesting information about a range of fighters during the period. A little over the top in it's overpraising of Tunney I felt which at times - made me question some of the objectivity of the material and sometimes some of its accuracy. However,Tunney certainly seems to have had his head screwed on right and was smart enough to enter the fight game and come out on top - which is an achievement in itself. A recommended read about a 'thinking man's heavyweight champion of the world'.

Fantastic read.
This is a goldmine for any boxing fanatic particularily interested in the early days of the game.
Detailed accounts of Tunney's early career are peppered with the stories of other notable greats such as Abe Attell, Benny Leonard, Harry Greb, Battling Levinsky and of course Dempsey.
The chapters flow easily and the book is set at a pleasant pace.
Great value.

Thinking of thinking on a thinking man? Think no longer! I think we have a winner! Think your way through 400 thinking pages of boxy thoughts and you too may one day be able to think like this great thinker who out-thought the legendary non-thinker jack dempsey.
