I have read many books on how one's career and experiences can inspire and influence those who need motivation and the drive to succeed. They tend to follow the same lines about how they adopted various techniques to overcome life's hurdles and how 'you can too.'. This is different. This doesn't, at any stage, patronise the reader. This is the story of Paul Vaden's achievements which, in the process, the reader BECOMES inspired by. It doesn't go out to give the reader a mental boost; it just DOES. It's mightily impressive, heart-warming and, as my brother can attest to having spoken with Mr.Vaden many years back for Boxing News magazine, a powerful book on a great fighter and, blatantly, a great ambassador for the sport and the work he has achieved since. Highly recommended.....

Paul Vaden is a rare individual in many ways & his motivational tome encompasses his path from a 4 year old besotted with Mohammed Ali through the by definition long & arduous path to championship glory in the ring on to what is sadly that rarest of story in the sport - post-career hyper-success. The book is written in such a way as to be accessible & useful to boxing fan & non-boxing fan alike. Few have sought to distil the self-evident requisite motivational mastery that is the hallmark of any great boxing champion into a set of tools with applications for society at large in such a frank, honest & refreshing manner as has Paul Vaden. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must read this! 10 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found myself completely fixated on Paul's story while reading this book. It was an incredibly fast read where I continually wanted to learn about the next part of this amazing man's journey. Paul is an extremely humble yet accomplished man. I invited him to speak at a corporate leadership offsite. He has an amazing ability to immediately captivate an audience with his honesty and genuine personality. Often, people speak of athletes and hypothesize what they might have become if they hadn't entered professional sports. I've often heard it said that Ali could have been a doctor given his superior intellect. The great thing is Paul has been able to answer that question by becoming the man he has become after his time as a professional boxer. He is incredibly smart and has the best memory of any human being I know. I like saying that his mastery of the obvious is amazing. His mastery of the details is downright frightening. You will thoroughly enjoy this book, and I encourage you to contact Paul to have him speak to any group of individuals you want to motivate. You WILL not be disappointed.

This was an amazing book about an athlete who came from humble beginnings and achieved his goals despite numerous setbacks. Paul took his struggles in stride and was always focused on the ultimate prize. There were many challenges that he overcame and you can see that he could have easily taken many other paths in life but he was focused, dedicated, and worked incredibly hard throughout his life to make it to the top both athletically and personally. Not only was he a gifted athlete but an incredible man dedicated to his family. He held himself to high standards inside the ring and out as he was a great father, husband, family man, and friend. He was also able to translate his skills into a successful career outside the ring once he retired from boxing. He loves giving back to his community and it shows by his tireless efforts mentoring children in his own community in San Diego and beyond. Great book! Great man! Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true champion.. 23 Aug. 2013
By Simon A - Published on Amazon.com

A well-written, honest and entertaining book; a page turner. An extremely talented and dedicated boxer in love with his sport, Mr. Vaden followed his dream to become the world champion. On his way he was sometimes knocked down by life, but never knocked out. Always up to Answer the bell. After an impressive boxing career, he now applies his experience and personal qualities to pursue another goal-, that of inspiring others to set goals, think positive, not to give up, and to Answer the bell; all qualities of a Champion.

I was a very active boxer in San Diego in the early/mid eighties, and Vaden's book also brings back good old memories. Thank you!
5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and Motivating Book 7 Nov. 2013

I absolutely loved this book!! I recently had the pleasure of meeting Paul Vaden at a boxing clinic. He is a very sweet person. A true inspiration to all. He gave a speech to a group of kids and kept their attention the entire time. It was very compelling. "Answer the Bell" continues with the same theme. It is inspiring, educational, and entertaining. Paul helps show how a true champion overcomes obstacles in life with faith and determination. It's an easy read and one you will enjoy from cover to cover. Thank you Paul for sharing with us all your struggles as well as successes. God Bless you my friend!!
