Silvermann's collection covers a wide range of material, from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, from boxers' memoirs through journalism to fiction. Most of the items display the high quality that writing about boxing so often has and, since the book is an anthology, the reader can dip into it as and when s/he wishes. I would recommend this to anyone interested in that most visceral of all sports, the sometimes noble art of boxing.

Certainly not for the casual fan, not really 36 of the "Greatest Boxing Stories Ever", but more 10 Great, 18 Good, 4 OK and 4 Absolute Duds. Loved the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle though. Could have done with a few more contemporary stories to give the book more of a range. A decent read but I have no desire to pick it up again - if I could give a 3.5 I would.

I got this as a gift for my friend and he enjoyed it as a boxing fan.
He says that he would recommend it to other people as a good read both for the boxing fans and sports fans in general.

A very interesting and forthright book which is used as a reader for a reluctant reader. A very good motivator.
