In this bountiful collection of his best boxing stories of the last half-century, Budd Schulberg takes his fans all the way back to an epic bare-knuckle contest in England two hundred 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 history of their times; brings fans up to date in the careers of the great names of recent decades-Tyson, Holyfield, De La Hoya, Hopkins, "Chico" Corrales; and much more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Throughout, Schulberg exhibits a boxing IQ matched by his wit. * Booklist *
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 *
