Maybe you think - so what? Well, after Jack had demolished Willard, the Kansas said Jack had come into the ring with his gloves on and his hands encased in plaster of Paris. This one photograph puts everything straight. Jack needed only his fists to win.
This book gives you an accurate view of Jack's life and the times he lived in. It is beautifully written and is a pleasure to read. If you are a Jack Dempsey fan then this publication is for you.
Generally though, although authorative, I personally I felt some of the info would have been better off being left in the footnotes to keep the flow of the narrative going.
Worth reading if you are keen to learn more about Jack Dempsey and boxing's hey day at the turn of the twentieth century. The 'HarvestBook' is also a very fine copy and a pleasure to leaf through - contains some great photos.
If you like this you will love the Jack Johnson Biography by G Ward which is set at a time just prior to Dempsey's reign.
