9780786158874: The Sweet Science

A. J. Liebling's classic New Yorker pieces on the "sweet science of bruising" bring vividly to life the boxing world as it once was. It depicts the great events of boxing's American heyday: Sugar Ray Robinson's dramatic comeback, Rocky Marciano's rise to prominence, Joe Louis's unfortunate decline. Liebling never fails to find the human story behind the fight, and he evokes the atmosphere in the arena as distinctly as he does the goings-on in the ring, a combination that prompted Sports Illustrated to name The Sweet Science the best American sports book of all time.

From AudioFile:

Grover Gardner is the perfect narrator for this collection of Lieblings New Yorker pieces about boxing, written in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Featured are Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Sandy Sadler, Archie Moore, Rocky Marciano, Jersey Joe Walcott--all fighters of Americas golden age of pre-television boxing. No one else has ever written so well about this sport. Gardner captures the voices of know-it-all New York fight fans and the denizens of the Neutral Corner, a New York City bar owned, tended, and patronized by fighters and their retinue. Gardners rendition of Tommy Farr, the Welsh heavyweight, alone is worth the purchase price. Those who love boxing, and even those who dont, will enjoy the Liebling-Gardner team.
