"This is some story and Braddock was some man ... Excellent." - THE SUNDAY TIMES

In the depths of the Great Depression, a failed boxer with broken hands came off the welfare rolls for one more fight to feed his wife and three children. Four bouts later, Jim Braddock was the heavyweight champion of the world, in the greatest comeback in sports history. He inspired a nation through one of its darkest periods, and his extraordinary achievements led Damon Runyon to nickname him the `Cinderella Man.'

Once he had been a contender, a light-heavy with skill and guts. But hand injuries and the aftershock of the Wall Street Crash left him toiling in railway yards and on New Jersey's Hudson River docks to pay the rent. His dreams of a title were over, his ring earnings gone, and he could barely afford to feed his young family.

But one man never lost faith: his manager Joe Gould. The tiny, loquacious Jew and the tall, straight-talking Irishman made an unlikely but inseparable couple, and their belief in each other was unshakable even when Braddock entered the ring a 10-1 underdog against the feared champion Max Baer who had been blamed for the deaths of two men in the ring. How the family man with a simple cause triumphed over overwhelming odds became the stuff of legend.

Author Michael C. DeLisa lives in New York and Venezuela. A boxing historian, he was a consultant on the Oscar-nominated movie "Cinderella Man" starring Russell Crowe.

This was a nice book to read about the story of how James Braddock was able to fight his way from the bottom to the top. Never let anything hold you back.

I fear that this well written and richly detailed book has gotten lost in the shuffle of all of the Braddock biographies that have been published in the wake of the success of the film "Cinderella Man" Even though it's far from the best of the group, it deserves a better fate than that.

Most of the Braddock volumes on the market have focused almost exclusively on the ring exploits of Braddock and his contemporaries, Delisa takes a slightly different approach in his narrative, incorporating more of Braddock's personal life into the story, and going into greater detail about events in his early childhood than other books have, to give the reader a more complete portrait of this American sports icon.

In my humble opinion, Cinderella Man: James J. Braddock, Max Baer, and the Greatest Upset in Boxing History by Jeremy Schaap is still the best book written on the subject, and I'll continue to recommend it, but Delisa's volume comes in a close second.

I knew a little bit about Jim Braddock before I read this book - as a boxing fan I'd heard of the Cinderella Man but never regarded him to be as interesting as the greats of the division like Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis. But this book made me realise what a fantastic character he was - and what a life he led.

There was no bull about Braddock; what you saw was what you got. He had an iron jaw and was a very good boxer but it was his heart that made him a champion; he never knew when to quit.

Michael Delisa has really done his homework, going back to orignal sources rather than regurgitating stuff from press agents and over-exaggerating boxing writers. He captures the man, the era and the fights. The cover notes say he was the historical consultant on the movie - and if you buy this book, you'll want to see the film. Great read.

I'm not a boxing fan, but became interested in James Braddock's story after watching the Movie Cinderella Man. My ultimate goal was to find our more about this man that staged an incredible comeback against staggering odds, to win the world heavy weight championship from Max Baer. Delisa's book attempts to deliver to the reader something more of Braddock's life; however, the information is mostly acecdotle and second hand, and fails to shed much more light on what Braddock was like. The fact of the matter is, there is likely little information about Braddock's life other then what Delisa tells, or he would have likely told it, given he mentions previous bios of the former champ that were written during Braddock lifetime. The upside to the book is that Delisa gives the reader an excellent view of the cast of characters that made up the world of boxing in the 20's and 30's, weaving Braddock into the picture when appropriate, which is often. Delisa also gives the reader a strong account of how the Great Depression affected Braddock, Boxing, and the nation, which embraced Braddock as one of their own, because he was down as far as anyone at the time and brought himself back from the edge of oblivion to save himself and his family.
