What this book lacks in sophistication of grammar, vocabulary and punctuation, it more than makes up for with a very easy to read account of Carl's career and life. It is rich in humour, and delivers a candid description and analyses of the fight game, getting the balance right between too much detail and not enough.

There wasn't a dull moment in the book, a lot like Carl's fights! Go read it.

Fresh off the back of Carls masterful dipslay against Glen Johnson I finally got round to reading his story, and thankfully it reads as fluently as he performs in the ring. As an avid reader of sports autobiographies I would put this on a par with Jamie Carraghers in that you get a great personal story mixed with considered and uncomprimising opinions for the sport that he sacrifices so much for. For example the anticipated section on the "what could have been" Joe Calzaghe fight is well argued without an air of sour grapes. Also I don't think anyone could read the chapter on the Kessler fight and not genuinely think several factors worked against him that night (Re-match soon me-thinks!) . Overall a very satisfying book and should fill in the gaps nicely for boxing fans playing catch up on the sensation that is the Cobra.
