    I probably overrated this by a half star or more since I'm a diehard Pacquiao fan. Poole is a good writer, but trying to tell the story of an athlete who is still actively competing is a losing proposition.

    This book is amazing because it inspired me to never give up. In the book it talks about how Manny overcame obstacles such as, leaving his family for almost 4 years to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer. This book might inspire you I hope it does, for it inspired me.

    Great book about boxing and Manny Paquiao. Must read even if you do not like Boxing. Manny fights more than to box. He fights against poverty!
