Format: Paperback
I've read the book, and there are more pictures regarding the warmup exercises rather than the technical aspects of the boxing - more pictures for footwork and up-jabs would've been welcome rather than a picture of a paticular muscle stretch if space was an issue. That would be my only critique. The information included in the book has some nice tips on how to sit down on your punches, adding feints to your game, and using angles on a heavy bag work out. The book also has a good shadow boxing routine, but like most routines you get out of it what you put into it.

By Joe Kopacz on August 28, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did not find the "advanced" tactics and strategies mentioned in the title. Most of the book gives a broad overview of the chapter's subject, mention of fighters that excelled in that area, and little on the execution and nuances of the actual tactic. I found it particulary annoying when in the "Practice" section of a chapter the author's advice was "refer back to my previous book to a lesson titled...."

Overall very dissapointed.
