I've watched Manny Pacquaio's movie (his life story) many times and so I assumed this book will be the same. However, like any other fans, I also wanted to have a copy of the book. I was going to send it to my brother in the Philippines who is a HUGE fan. (He named his son, "Emmanuel" and we call him "Manny"). I started reading it last weekend and couldn't put it down because it was totally different from the movie. There are so many lessons learned. The "author" did a great job in putting together Manny's life. I'm hoping this is also available in Tagalog version to make it more meaningful to Filipinos like me. Manny's words will be more touching and revealing if there will be a Tagalog version. I'm Manny's fan because of the honor he brings to our country but he also became an inspiration to me after reading this book.

I pre-ordered this book as soon as I saw the special promo in MPBoxing website(official Manny Pacquiao website).

Just received it 11/23 and I am happy to own it.Can't wait for the 2nd copy from Dunham as part of the promo.

It would be ideal if Dunham released this book after the Margarito fight, that is after Pacquiao received his new title winning from 8 different divisions--- making him the 8th wonder of the world!!!
It could have been a more interesting storyline.

Also, it could have been a great collectible if Manny had sign these books. Lastly, hardcover was okay but it could have been more attractive if the "gold Pacman title" was embossed on the front cover.

But as it is, I like the book - very simple yet deep...like Manny himself.

Pre-ordered through the MPBoxing website promotion.
This is an amazing book. It brings full circle who Manny Pacquiao is and how he came to be the best. Get to know more than just the boxer. This is a must buy for any Pacquiao fan. My wife wants her own copy because I will not put my copy down.

I chose to read this book, the autobiography, over the biography and I'm very glad I did. Overall after reading the book, I felt very inspired by him and his story. This book includes small anecdotes about his personal life, details about his training, some of his more recent fights (namely, against Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, and Miguel Cotto), and his campaigns for office that could only be told by the "Boxing Congressman" himself. The only gripe I had was that the editing in the e-book could have been better; mainly lots of punctuation errors all throughout the book. Nonetheless, I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who wanted to learn more about one of the greatest boxers of all time.

It is an easy book to read. His story is inspiring. It is easy to see how Manny has become known as the people's champion. He has never forgotten his humble beginnings.

I've always been a huge supporter for Pacquiao. I love how he carries himself with pride knowing that he makes other Filipinos hopeful and proud to be a flip even for just those moments in the ring. This book actually shows the reality of what he went through. Its a story that is not new to many Filipinos. The dirty streets, slum, and the feeling of utter poverty has been experienced first hand or has been humbled enough when around it. The book gives anyone a taste of what its like to come from nothing to a whole lot of things. Its a book that will motivate you to strive for better. All at the same time, Manny doesn't forget his roots. He exudes what it is to be a down to earth Filipino, a good winner, and someone for kids to look up to. Its an easy read that will keep you turning pages because after all, who doesn't like to hear about a true rags to riches story?

I could not put this book down! As a huge Pacquiao fan, I felt I already knew all there was to know about Manny, turns out I was dead wrong! This book has a lot of great insight on Manny not just as a boxer, but as a person. From his early days boxing just so he'd have money to eat to becoming the #1 boxer in the world making millions, this book covers it all. The author Timothy James really gives the reader all there is to know about Manny. Don't let other "Pacman" books fool you, this is the REAL DEAL! I recommend this book to any real Pacquiao / Boxing fan!

I bought the book "Pacman: behind the scenes with manny pacquiao" and that was great, but this one is even better. Manny talks about his entire upbringing and rise to the top of the world. This book is very inspirational and uplifting, I would not only strongly recommend Pacquiao fans to get it but also anyone who is looking for a spiritual guidance type of reading. The only type of critisism I would give is that this book makes manny look like a saint. The other one I mentioned above reveals more sides of him as far as mistakes made in his life. Still worth 5 stars though. Get It!!!!
