Default Boxing Book Recommendations?

Okay, inspired by Drew101's post, what are some boxing books you've read and how would you rate them?

Would you recommend others to read them or would you recommend others to pass?

The only one I've actually read was The Ageless Warrior by Mike Fitzgerald, and I'm about to read a book my old man got me about Teddy Atles (though, that's down on my list at present time, as my books-to-read list always seems to be growing).

Let's hear.

I actually have one by Gilbert ODD. It focouses on most of the notable boxers in the games history, contenders, fringe contenders and champions. The interesting part though is the list of awards, title fights, and the bareknuckle boxing history

"McIlvanney on Boxing"

A brilliant read from pieces of McIlvanney's work over the years, including newspapers The Observer and The Sunday Times. He's always rated among the very best British journalists. Without question the best on the fight game.

Hagler v Hearns, Ali v Foreman, Watt v Davis, Whitaker v Chavez, etc. Are among the fights covered, some fights its his build-up preview, and after fight articles.

He done the foreword on Muhammad Ali - His Life And Times, by Thomas Hauser.
