Read full description of the books:
This is awful writing - pretentious and cliched. What's more, the author takes every opportunity to make himself the subject, particularly when he can reference a compliment paid to him by those who trained him, making this as much of an ego-driven work as a scholarly focus on its subject. The analysis ranges from interesting to obvious. Why not instead read Trimbur's "Come Out Swinging," a far superior and intriguing ethnography of a boxing gym; her book is much better written, with first-rate analysis, and an appropriate focus on its subject rather than the author. As for "Body and Soul" - skip it.
