Condición del libro:New
There is only one winner in boxing. Fighting against your opponent and fighting against your own inner demons become one in the same. Those who survive both in and out of the ring are beloved worldwide. Those who do not spiral downward into drugs, prison, and even murder. "[My] life's been pretty tragic," remarks Johnny. "But in the ring, it's been a blessing." Mi Vida Loca is not just a nickname for Johnny, but a legendary tale of a life lived over the edge and back.From the Inside Flap:
"The nuclear reactor I have inside, the crazy machine that drives me all the time, the manic energy that drives me beyond my best instincts and my best heart and my best wishes for other people, and for myself, it’s like a machine that has possessed me. I could never stop an impulse. And I never knew why I did afterwards. Couldn’t remember half the time. Just got some idea in my head and had to act on it. It’s like the usual moment of judgment somebody has, just wasn’t there.
Years later I would learn about my bi-polar disorder. Years later I understood the chemical misfiring in the brain. But back then I was dousing my crazy fire cracker firing brain with so many illegal substances it just made for a cocktail of insanity. My crazy life was inside of me, too."
~ JOHNNY TAPIA, from Mi Vida Loca cocktail of insanity. My crazy life was inside of me, too."
