Nothing short of brilliant!, 23 Oct 2011
McIlvanney on Boxing is, without doubt, one of the best boxing books I have ever read. The author, who is an absolute master of metaphor, takes you into the hearts and minds of his subjects with a wonderful clarity that is educational, moving and exhilarating, all at the same time. I have just finished reading this excellent work, and I know I will be revisiting those pages for many years to come. Any boxing fan who has not read this tome should buy a copy and read it immediately.
