"The book is written in a highly conversational tone, and by the end the reader will know precisely what it is like to listen to the Bill Walsh of boxing hold court on the exotic art of the cornerman." --New York Times Book Review

"[H]ere's one for the fans: an as-close-up-as-you-can-get view of boxing's biggest, baddest personalities and poundings." -Men's Journal

"This book's appeal lies in Dundee's colorful and punchy personality, as he enlivens the prose with entertaining, Yogi Berra-like jokes, tautologies and euphemisms. It's no surprise that Dundee helped Ali develop his famous rhymes." --Publishers Weekly

I've been a fan for most of my life and this is one of the best books I've ever read on the subject I once wrote to the author and as busy as he was he sent me a warm, friendly, personal reply. If you read this book you'll find how well he treated his fighters and everyone he met or was associated with. A Roman Catholic Christian he lived by his faith. He passed on in 2012, a great loss for fighters and fans alike. Maybe the greatest trainer and manager in the history of the sport. Buy the book. It's well worth the price and you'll learn a lot.

Angelo Dundee is famous for being the trainer for Muhammad Ali and for Sugar Ray Leonard. But he also worked with Carmen Basilio, Willie Pastrano, Luis Rodriguez, and later with George Foreman.

The book is alternately humorous and inspiring, as Dundee spins yarn after yarn from his years as an illustrious trainer. The bulk of the book is about his years with Ali, and he clears the air as to what really happened between the fourth and fifth rounds of the fist Henry Copper fight, as well as what was up with the loose ropes in Zaire in the 1974 Ali-Foreman fight. Ali fans will have heard all this before, and Dundee doesn't give you an unbiased opinion of the Ali years. He still thinks that the second Leon Spinks fight was a vintage Ali performance (when in fact, Ali looked terrible and Spinks was worse).

Dundee rarely has a bad thing to say about anyone, but he did have problems with Leonard's manager Mike Trainer, who was always trying to withhold money from Dundee.

And it sounds like Dundee didn't get paid as much for his years with Ali as a person might have expected.

Bert Randolph Sugar helped Angelo to write this book, and it shows every time the text tells us that someone "beat the bejabbers" out of another guy (a favorite and overused expression by Sugar).

But the book is nostalgic and fun and a recommended read! Long live Angelo Dunde!

Dundee has seen it all. And he tells all a bout seeing all, in a sanitized version I’m sure, in this well written fast paced recounting of his life and times, and in particular his training of Ali, Leonard and Foreman three legendary fighters of the last fifty years. Highly recommended if you’re a boxing aficionado like myself.

Angelo is a hall of fame trainer who has worked with some of the greatest boxers including "The Greatest " himself. His view is different in that it's from a trainers POV something we don't often get.

Enjoyed reading about Dundee's experiences from soaking in the world of boxing thanks to being the kid brother of someone in the business to being in Ali's corner to helping Foreman in his comeback bid. He writes with a very sympathetic and positive tone (with the exception of one person who, if Dundee is to be believed, wasn't exactly Mother Teresa). Many a time I felt as though i was Dundee, rooting for his fighters as if I was their trainer and in the arena with them.

OK,so if you're into boxing you may have heard some of these stories. But sometimes great stories need to be retold and who better to tell them than these two fine men. The book is a must read. I couldn't put it down. The tales Angelo has lived through are told with humor and affection. If you like Muhammad Ali, Foreman, Leonard or just boxing in general; buy this book. You'll love it! To Angelo and Bert, thankyou for telling the tales...Suerte always to you both! Keep Punching....
