"Ron Fried has written a post 9/11 classic of ironic self-awareness. Cool. Tantilizing and insightful."
"The author packs a lot of insight into this slim, gracefully written book. Here, the 9/11 context is crucial to the hero's personal dilemma, adding an extra layer of meaning to our universal grapling with questions of self and society."
My Father's Fighter
"A literary knockout."
"Tough, smart, hilarious, and bittersweet. ...Belongs on the same shelf with Leonard Gardner's Fat City and Josph Conrad's The Secret Sharer."
Corner Men: Great Boxing Trainers
"Fried delivers...an action-packed ten-rounder that ranks as a top contender for fans of the sweet science."
"A great book."
