Review

""Where a Man Stands" is one of those books that is impossible to put down! The only way I can try to understand Carter's experience is to reminisce about a championship fight in 1981 against Tommy Hearns when my left eye was closed shut and the temperature in the ring in Las Vegas was 100 degrees. It's during those moments in our lives that we question, do we proceed and reach for respect and equality or do we quit? Carter answered, and it's a victory for all of us!"--Sugar Ray Leonard
