5.0 out of 5 stars
great book!, 20 Jun 2009
an excellent book i would def recommend. Tells the story of how nelson was the laughing stock of the gym, blew 2 world title chances and ultimately fulfilled his potentital and went on to become world champion. in between we hear of his beatings in the gym as he learned to hone his skills and sparring trips abroad where he was 'fresh meat off the plane'. it is a very funny and moving book. a book for the underdog, for anyone who is struggling to believe in themselves, johnny nelson proves you can achieve your dreams with stubborness and hard work, despite terrible setbacks. a classic!
