"None of us are perfect. Not even our heroes. Since the death of boxing's only undefeated heavyweight champion in the history of the sport, only six biographers have had the gumption to even attempt to put to page the life story of Rocco Francis Marchegiano, or, Rocky Marciano. And even then, most have either not had access to, looked the other way, or simply glossed over the human struggles that Rocky, like all humans, deal with. Until now. John Cameron has taken the task to show that the heart that beat within the chest of Marciano, the heart that refused to go down to defeat, the heart that overcame seemingly impossible odds, was indeed a human heart. And that doesn't make Rocky less of a hero, but in fact, makes him an even bigger hero, and one more accessable to us. John Cameron is to be commended for going where no one else would dare to go!"
Chuck Marbry (Ring Talk Boxing Journalist)
"Cameron writes movingly about Rocky's childhood and the lives of his parents, Pierino Marchegiano and Pasqualina Picciuto. Rocky was their miracle baby. Even at a young age the future heavyweight champion of the world revealed traits that would one day distinguish him from other fighters."
John J. Raspanti
"John Cameron has written a fine book on Rocky Marciano."
"I expected a couple of morsels to nourish and delight, instead I got an epicurean feast of revelations...I think it is safe to say, you know more about Rocky Marciano than anyone."
"If you're a fan of one of the most famous fighters ever to put on a pair of gloves, Rocky Marciano, (then) the name John Cameron might become a familiar one to you soon...(the project) is obviously a consuming labour of love for the author"
