Book Summary:

As an ex-professional boxer, Ronnie Callaghan divides his time between market trading, when it suits him, and running a boxing gym. One day, however, he is given a sharp shock when his comfortable lifestyle is threatened. Either by choice or coincidence, an unwelcome face from his past confronts him: a certain ‘plastic gangster’ by the name of Paul Rossetti. Upon meeting again, their lifelong hatred for each other returns with a vengeance and an altercation soon follows. The violent outcome leads to a string of illicit events, which soon threaten to spiral out of control. As a result, Callaghan is soon drawn into a web of deceit in the heart of the criminal underworld: controlled racketeering, fronted by crime baron Terry Winters. The life of a gangster, however, is rarely a quiet one. Once a turf war erupts, the gruesome services of a professional hitman, Enrico Maniela, are called into play. With the stakes high and everything to lose, Winters will stop at nothing to contain what’s left of his crumbling empire. As for Callaghan, it seems inevitable that he and his hated rival Paul Rossetti are destined to share the same grim destiny. Can Callaghan, with the help of his lifelong friend and mentor Siddie Levy, ever find a way to escape with his life? There can only be one winner…

Book Summary:

Kicking ass and taking notes—what it’s like to be a woman in the ring. Alison Dean teaches English literature. She also kicks people. Hard. Despite having several amateur fights under her belt, she struggles to be taken as seriously as a male kickboxer would. “You punch hard for a girl” is still an insult—women aren’t supposed to participate in violence. Her unique perspective as a thirty-something PhD turned fighter allows Dean to expose and explain the inner world of combat sports. She articulates ways fighting changes a person’s—and particularly a woman’s—relationship to their body and to the world around them, and considers how women shift boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and MMA’s male dominated cultures in turn. Combining research, anecdotes, and interviews with coaches and fighters, Seconds Out looks at the history of women in the ring, the challenges of training, and the nuances of fighting while female. She shares her own experiences, good and bad, as she takes on her first few amateur fights. With the literary acumen and panache of fighting’s greatest writers, like A. J. Leibling, Joyce Carol Oates, and Katherine Dunn, but from the perspective of someone who has been in the ring, Seconds Out brilliantly explores our culture’s relationship with violence, particularly when it is practiced by women.

FINDING JOY WITHIN shows us the steps to finding true joy again. It is about potential, the potential for all of us to live the life we most want to live, a life where we express our values in all that we do.

It is closer to a state of peace than it is to happiness. FINDING JOY WITHIN will take us there.

Book Summary:

From 'A Low Blow' to 'Went the Distance', a fascinating and lively examination of the regular use of terms from the boxing ring in our everyday language. Have you ever stopped to notice how often your local newspaper or favourite magazine uses the terms 'On the Ropes', 'The Gloves Are Off' and 'Knockout Punch'? How often TV newsreaders will say that a politician has "Thrown His hat in the Ring', is a 'Big Hitter', is 'Taking it on the Chin', is 'Down for the Count' or has the 'Killer Instinct'? Knight of the realm, leading businessman, colourful and controversial commentator, and boxing aficionado Sir Robert - Bob -Jones certainly has. Over a period of years he made careful note of how often terms cropped up and then retraced their etymological origins in boxing history. The result is a lively, entertaining, and thought-provoking miscellany of boxing terms that are now part of our everyday English language. Some have strayed far from their original meanings, others are more frequently in use now than at any other time. Jones asks why that might be, and his answers are, well, a knockout.
