Favorite Book: "Beyond Glory: Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling, and a "World on the Brink" by David Margolick

"This book described the era--the political and social makeup of America and Germany--leading up to the legendary heavyweight fight between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling. In those days, everyone knew the heavyweight champion in the same way that he or she knew the president, and a knockout punch could resonate deep into society at large. I loved reading this book because I love history and boxing."
