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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Schulberg's prose is imperious . . . Anybody with the slightest interest in the literature of sport should try to get their hands on this book * Daily Telegraph *
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
Schulberg remains a distinguished boxing author, which you'll confirm if you do yourself a favour and buy his new book * Daily Mail *
