Yeah I liked George's biography too. Also liked Smokin Joe's biography. I read the Boz in Jr. High Brian Bosworths biography and liked it. Also have Herschel Walker's biography/PT book and like it as well. Im eagerly awaiting the Tyson biography to come out.

I also read "Silent Scream" a biography of Charles Bronson a prisoner in the UK that was good. I can include it because he was a bareknuckle boxer while he was free, ala Kimbo.
