The fighter did "not succeed in converting the Philadelphian into a horizontal, but he made him look like two sides of a triangle in search of a third."
No one writes this way anymore! AJ Liebling's analogies were the highlight of a book woven through the art of boxing, deftly narrated with an old tyme voice by Grover Gardner.

Any additional comments?
I've listened to this book three times. I'm a boxing fan, of course, but Liebling is a gifted wordsmith. The prose he used to write the articles that make up this book is some of the best ever written in the English language. The narrator does an outstanding job too. I would not recommend this to someone who is not a boxing and/or sports fan though as much of it would not interest them. However, it is a must for the casual or devoted fan of the sweet science of bruising!
