Ringside is a bountiful collection of the most memorable boxing stories by legendary fight-game writer Budd Schulberg. Schulberg takes us all the way back to an epic bare-knuckle contest in England 200 years ago; draws a revealing portrait of 'Uncle' Mike Jacobs, the promotional impresario of boxing in its golden age; expertly places Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali in the social context of their times; brings followers up to date on the careers of the great names of recent decades - Tyson, Holyfield, de la Hoya, Hopkins, 'Chico' Corrales; and much more. Throughout this book, Schulberg provides the perfect blend of great writing on great fighters, laced with a realistic sense of boxing's wrongs as well as its rights. With prose that sparkles with authority and insight, Ringside is a main event in the world of sports literature.

"Schulberg is not merely a contender, he's an undisputed champion" * Independent on Sunday *
"Schulberg's prose packs as much of a punch as any of his heroes, but it is the sheer breadth of knowledge and history displayed here that takes the breath away" * Metro *
"I have come across few men with as profound an understanding of the imperatives that govern the quality of a performance in the ring . . . the voice that will come through the ensuing pages is not just engaging and eloquent. It is wise" -- from the introduction by Hugh McIllvanney
