From Publishers Weekly
Boxing has become a trendy sport, popular for the thorough aerobic workout it gives and its ability to make practitioners feel physically courageous. In Fighting Fit: Boxing Workouts, Techniques and Sparring, Doug Werner of Start-Up Sports and Alan Lachica, a certified U.S.A. Amateur Boxing coach and former boxer, shoot straight from the hip ("We suggest you buy [protective gear] from a catalog because equipment sold by mass merchants is often crap"). They take the flash out of boxing by breaking down the sport step by step--made even easier with 450 photos--to teach newcomers correct technique and how to apply it for a proper workout.
