    Review quote
    This veers dangerously close to a humblebrag, but the book I've dog-eared and marked up most this year is this no-B.S. boxing guide. I've been doing halfhearted boxing training for a few years, but for some reason, this snappy little number has me mixing up my one-two uppercuts and my double-jab crosses with renewed vigor. (The iPod with the Rocky soundtrack doesn't hurt, either.)--Daniel Kraus"Booklist Online" (01/01/2013)
