"[A] sociological tour de force...sure to be widely used as an exemplar of how to conduct participant observation research.... It is packed with fruitful conceptual and theoretical discussions."-Qualitative Sociology
"A fresh and authoritative treatment."-The Ring: The Bible of Boxing
"Body & Soul will pull you into the deep rhythms of boxing and should certainly earn a place in the canon of literature in the ring."-Los Angeles Times
