Overview

This boxing handbook provides up-to-date, in-depth coaching for serious contenders. Weaving fundamental skills into a progression of drills that hone technique in increasingly complex, demanding, and realistic fighting situations, the handbook aids fighters in developing the reflexes of a complete boxer and teaches the move from a process-and-react mentality to one of seeing-and-reacting. Hundreds of sequential images illustrate vital steps in the progression—from proper stance, effective footwork, and range to defense and counters, the importance of angles, and creating winning strategies.

Decent quick breakdown of fundamentals. But the formatting of the pictures, at least in the e-book version, is horribly, horribly out-of-whack. It's really hard to understand the order of the sequences in many of the moves. Does B&N ever update books that have these format problems? They should.
