5.0 out of 5 stars Great person, Great life story of overcoming all kinds of barriers to be inspired by., 18 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Joe Louis, My Life (Hardcover)
If you love Joe Louis then this is absolutely the book for you... simple. If you love boxing history then I believe you'll still find this a great read. You find out about joes life from joe himself. You can tell professional authors have assisted as the book is written well, structured well and never has time to get boring. You'll find out about joe's humble beginnings in Alabama. To moving to Detroit to escape the deep south in search of opportunity. How he overcame the colour barriers in boxing (and life too) with dignity yet humbleness to become quite possibly the greatest heavyweight ever. you'll hear about his time in the army. Then his fall from superstardom with financial and marriage trouble. Joe, although often acting as the perfect gentlemen (in order to gain the establishments and publics approval in a time when racism was more prominent) had flaws that most casual fans wont know about. No matter how great he was, he was human just like the rest of us... and his story proved to be a very enjoyable read. 'He was a credit to his race.. the human race'. Great person, Great life story of overcoming all kinds of barriers to be inspired by.
