Following his remarkable fiction debut, Rope Burns, author F. X. Toole's Pound for Pound is a big, brawny novel of honor, perseverance, family, and forgiveness, set in towns where violence is the norm and success stories take on an almost mythic importance. It is the story of Dan Cooley, an aging, legendary Los Angeles trainer, who takes on Chicky Garza, a troubled young fighter hungry for glory in the notoriously corrupt San Antonio boxing circuit. Written in the masterful style that has earned the author glowing comparisons to Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, and Frank McCourt, this unforgettable posthumous novel celebrates a unique and powerful bond, and the courage that overcomes insurmountable obstacles in and out of the ring.

Is a semi-biographical account of an everyday mans life in a different country attempting to support his family. Arnold Ramirez, husband and father of two, has left the Philippines in search of a better way of life for his family. Arriving in England, his straight forward, often spontaneous approach to business earns him as many enemies as friends. Arnold refuses to be bullied, intimidated or belittled by this different culture. Arnold gives his unique perspective on each of his workplace. From the fast paced, back stabbing world as salesman, to the fast paced, back stabbing world as waiter. Behind the scenes, it is Arnold who is in charge of those around. It portrays his ambition to be better than the situation he is given. Fighting as much as he struggles, giving as good as he is put down and striving to create his own unique place within a business, for money and for values.

RESPECTED, REVERED-AND EXPENDABLEPain. Getting ripped off. Watching your potential wither on the vine due to contractual disputes that arise when people view you as their property. More pain. For the upper echelon of professional athletes in mixed martial arts, life can resemble the nightmare, described by Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now, of a snail traversing the edge of a razorblade.Pound for Pound traces five legends-Georges St-Pierre, BJ Penn, Anderson Silva, Maurício Rua and Fedor Emelianenko-through their humble origins, baptism by blood and fire, and rise to the pinnacle of MMA, where the sword of Damocles constantly threatens.On the surface, we're conditioned to see these fighters as mere sports entertainers. We consume pay-per-views just as a diner patron drops quarters in a jukebox. Fighters' lives, however, are often more complex-and disturbing-than what event previews or color commentary portray.
