Favorite Book: "Catcher in the Rye" J. D. Salinger

"This book is an unforgettable character study that every teenager going through the pangs of adolescence can appreciate and identify with. Salinger captures the moods, anxieties and experiences of typical teenage angst and awakening. It is poignant, hilariously funny, sad, and hopeful. I have several favorite boxing books but Nat Fleischer’s “50 Years at Ringside” was the first I ever read and was a great introduction for a new fan. It remains among my all-time favorites."
