Brims with fascinating stories.... Essential reading for all serious students of the sweet science. -- Gordon Marino * The New York Times *
There's an operatic, carnival-barker quality to Schulberg's reporting...that reflects the high-low vertigo of the best sports writing. -- Benjamin Healy and Benjamin Schwartz * The Atlantic Monthly *
Ringside contains Schulberg's mix of erudition and street authenticity. -- Robert David Jaffee * Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles *
Having covered boxing for more than 60 years...Budd Schulberg knows a thing or two about the sweet science. -- Carole Goldberg * Hartford Courant *
A knockout of a sportswriting collection. * Dartmouth Alumni Magazine *
Schulberg's prose is imperious...Anybody with the slightest interest in the literature of sport should try to get their hands on this book. -- Andrew Baker * Telegraph *
Ringside is that rare thing: a sports book by a writer who has truly lived his subject. Boxing has consumed Shulberg for over half a century and it shows on every absorbing page of this wonderful collection. -- Nick Clarke * Independent *
