eBook Description: There is no sport more unforgiving than boxing. Boxing represents the best of who we are as individuals. Those who have participated in the sport, at any level, can use the lessons they have learned in all aspects of their lives, including business and politics, as there are many parallels to life and boxing. People observing the sport can draw on the lessons that it teaches in all phases of their lives. Life in the Ring gathers the wisdom and lore of the "sweet science" of boxing and organizes them into a single volume that is historical, literary and inspirational. From the anecdotal (Did heavyweight champion Robert Fitzsimmons really quip, "The bigger they are, the harder they fall?") to the well-documented (many heavyweight champions wrote or ghosted books on boxing training and technique), Life in the Ring culls from the long and fabled literature of pugilism--Jack Dempsey on perseverance, John L. Sullivan on sizing up your opponent, Joe Louis on handling others' expectations: Life in the Ring is an invaluable compendium of the life lessons offered by this most exacting of sports.
