Default Books about Boxing Trainers

I am interested to read some books on boxing trainers, i.e. insights into their fight philosophy, methods, fighters they have trained, experiences etc.

What books would you recommend? Thanks

PS. Also, links to any good articles you have read on the web would be great too.

Good thread idea, I'd never even thought about that..
But something of this sort would definitely be an interesting read

Although not exactly about Trainers...Boxing Is My Sanctuary (Theodore Sares) is a collection of essays that explores both sides of Boxing that is coloured with paradox.
Between the violent and affectionate, the barbaric and the civilized, Sares finds ringside refuge in the midst of the sights, sounds, and smells that define boxing.

Also....Hard Fought Lessons From A Life In the Ring by Freddie Roach is due to be released next Spring!!!

I read Dave Andersons book, plus Ron Fried book on corner men - both great reads. Also, Angelo Dundee's book was an excellent read. Is that new Freddie Roach book available anywhere yet. And what other books are good reads from the trainer's perspective?

Dave Anderson's book is AMAZING because of how many different versions of the same stories exist, especially how they connect to the Feds, corruption, etc.

i read The Art of In-fighting by Frank Klaus. Interesting book, infighting was something new in boxing when he was writing it, but tips n tricks from book are still the same today, he explained it really well.

I am looking more bios, rather technically 'how to be box'. I like to learn how good trainers developed fighters, so it interesting to learn some anecdotes on how they went about it and their boxing philosophy.
