I'm a former print and broadcast news reporter/anchor and was one for about 30 years, then was hired at two separate universities to teach journalism students how to write as professional, as unbiased as possible and write in in the journalistic writing style of which all journalists (print, broadcast and electronic) journalists need to follow. Some newer journalists follow these guidelines. Others don't.
"Becoming Taz"s book follows this style. The sentences are written in a conversational writing style: PERFECT for the boxing fan to appreciate AND for those who love boxing history and boxing as a sport, but whom never have fought in the ring. It's a shame that I am the ninth reviewer to post a review@this book. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK MORE HIGHLY. My Facebook Page is firstname.lastname@example.org for anyone who wishes to check out my credentials. Yes, I know that I'm exposing my FB page to (perhaps) a slew of crackpots and those who hate boxing. And I also hate the brutal fighting of two men under those conditions. However, readers must understand the larger picture of the world of boxing! These men and those who went before them have come from various backgrounds, have trained so hard to get to where they were or are. I am not a violent woman, nor is the "Taz" for that matter. I am not being paid to write this review, nor have I met "Taz" face to face. This review purely is from my reading of this FANTASTIC and outstandingly-written book from "Tax." entitled, "Becoming Taz," published in 2014. Give this book a chance and read it. For those of you who love the art and history of boxing, I think you all will love this book. And I ain't lyin.'
