A Fighting Life

For more than seven decades, Lou Duva has been a mainstay in the boxing world. With his craggy face and the bulbous nose of a boxer with questionable defensive skills, Duva is one of the most enduring images of boxing, having climbed in and out of rings for championship fights on six different continents. In Lou Duva: A Fighting Life, you’ll hear firsthand the exhilarating story of how Duva balanced family life and his work with nineteen different world champions. The son of Italian immigrants who landed at Ellis Island and lived in Manhattan before moving the family to Paterson, New Jersey, Duva had the odds stacked against him. Rather than settling, Duva was able to claw his way out of poverty to reach the pinnacle of the boxing business, where he laid the foundation of Main Events Promotions—one of the most powerful boxing promotions companies in the sport. Lou Duva: A Fighting Life chronicles an amazing boxing career filled with ups and downs. From his training of champions including Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis to staging some of the biggest bouts in the history of boxing, including the classic match between Sugar Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns, to the notorious “Riot at the Garden,” Duva pulls no punches as he shares his Hall of Fame life for the first time.

Enzo Calzaghe A Fighting Life

at Nathan Cleverly for not taking a unification fight as if it is that easy. Boxing just doesn't work like that, or not in my experience. The big, name American fighters will have zero interest in splitting the purse fairly with Nathan ...

Enzo Calzaghe   A Fighting Life

He is the genius behind the genius. Enzo never fought in the ring, but he still turned his son Joe into one of the top ten boxers on the planet - a World Champion with a record of 46 unbeaten fights. Now Enzo tells the extraordinary behind-the-scenes story of his flamboyant career and the making of a fighting legend. It is much more than a round-by-round tale of ropes and gloves, and grit and glory. For the first time, Enzo opens the family album and discloses intimate details of his bruising upbringing in Sardinia, where the Mafia lurked on every corner and his father practiced 'tough love'. He talks of fleeing Italy to hitch-hike and busk his way around Europe. He charts his improbable rise from slaving as a waiter cum-cook in a seaside restaurant to support many big name chart stars such as Shirely Bassey. Not only does it provide a unique insight into the father and son relationship that conquered boxing, but also shows how the heart and determination of one self-made man serves as an example for anyone who craves success and is prepared to overcome near-impossible odds to achieve it. 'I'm a life fighter,' he says. This book proves it.

Stella s Story

In addition, the book offers a positive message about love, devotion, and fighting for life that, I hope, will inspire others as they confront negativity on a daily basis in their struggle to prevail against all the odds.

Stella s Story

I wish there had been a book like this when I was fighting alongside my partner, Stella, as her 24/7 caregiver in a 19-month battle against the deadliest brain tumor, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Too often I felt sideswiped by unexpected obstacles. The Internet was a great resource, but having a book at hand illuminating the day-to-day struggle--treatments, questions, decisions, emotions, surprises--would have helped immensely. After Stella died in November 2000, I wanted to write such a guidebook for caregivers and patients who, sadly, are following in our footsteps. As I reviewed hundreds of e-mails to and from friends, Brain Tumor List members, doctors, and others, I realized the book was already written. It provides an almost-daily, immediate chronicle of our experiences, including weeks in a Mexican clinic. A detailed Table of Contents and Index help readers find information about doctors, treatments, medications, and problems ranging from bed sores to radiation injury. In addition, the book offers a positive message about love, devotion, and fighting for life that, I hope, will inspire others as they confront negativity on a daily basis in their struggle to prevail against all the odds.

Life s Fight Love s Might

Sometimes their fights went on for days or weeks at a time. It was awful to live with. Instead of fighting about our problems, Rod and I began to talk to each other, which became the norm. ... Life's. Fight,.

Life s Fight  Love s Might

Life's Fight, Love's Might is a controversial true story about Lorna, a courageous determined Australian woman whose life was ravaged by the betrayal of her family, her employers, the Christian church, the judicial system and sanctioned abuse by the state and federal governments. Lorna stood alone against the world that's until she meets Rod, a surfie who sweeps her off her feet. Unfortunately, their fervent love also feels the smack of betrayal, which nearly destroys them both, but ultimately they stand united with trust, love and loyalty. When Rod enlists, Lorna becomes an excellent army wife. She learns how to compromise, because the army must come first. She becomes independent and resourceful while her soldier is away, supporting him all the way up the ranks to Warrant Office. Rod's postings take Lorna and their two children to Sydney, Papua New Guinea, Canberra and Melbourne. Lorna finds each posting is fraught with its own kind of agony, with Papua New Guinea being the worst of all. She survives unbelievable traumas, which befall her and her family. Then she faces the failures of the Australian Defence Force and the Department of Veterans' Affairs. To the Australian people these two systems appear to be functioning at an optimum for the serving members of the ADF, veterans' and their families respectively, but it only appears that they are. Lorna also gives accounts of how the leadership within the Christian community believes it is above the law of the land, and how the judicial system aides the church's betrayal of trust. In the end, Lorna's resilience and strength wins through to overcome the impossible, leading her to write this inspiring book.

The Fight of Our Life

It was a virtual death sentence. The resident at the hospital had just said, "We are recommending Bill be sent to a nursing home. He has some cognitive issues and is unlikely to benefit from rehabilitation." Complications had set in ten days after successful brain surgery. Fewer than four weeks later, still unable to clearly define the cause, the medical team had reached its decision. They were giving up on him. My husband was fifty-six years old. It was my unshakeable belief that their decision was both wrong and premature. We had everything at stake. Suddenly I was fighting for his life. Our life. How the hell did we get to this? The Fight of Our Life is Catherine Hawley's dramatic, no-holds-barred account of her battles with the health care system to attain rehabilitation and a higher quality of life for her husband -- at home -- allowing them more years of their special life together. It is a soaring love story and a sobering patient beware story -- a dramatic, engaging read with clear warnings of how readers should prepare for medical struggles ahead.

You Can Fight For Your Life

In the course of my research, I discovered that in the 18th and 19th centuries the concept of a linkage between an individual's life history or personality and cancer was quite widely accepted. But why did this idea lapse into obscurity ...

You Can Fight For Your Life

The reason why clinical science has not solved the riddle of cancer may not lie totally within the realm of the laboratory. It may lie in part in the mind and emotions of the patient. After two decades of research and psychotherapeutic work with cancer patients, Lawrence LeShan offers new evidence and startling insights into why some individuals get cancer while others do not--and why some are able to fight successfully for their lives while others rapidly succumb to the disease. Dr. LeShan has accumulated strong evidence that the mind can make the body receptive to cancer--and that the mind is also capable of fighting back. This is a book of hope. For while cancer kills, it can also be killed. You Can Fight For Your Life is a major humanistic work by an author with a passionate commitment to life.

The Fighting Fisherman

Yvon Durelle fought from the tiny Acadian hamlet of Baie Ste. Anne to within a heartbeat of being light-heavyweight boxing champion of the world. Durelle emerges in this book as a man of contradictions. His lifelong nickname was "Doux"--gentle--but he mastered a spectacularly brutal profession. Accounts of his fighting career reveal a man of incredible toughness and audacity: in 1952 he fought Olympic gold medalist Floyd Patterson with a broken hand. His life outside the ring was equally audacious: in 1977 he was charged with shooting and killing a man outside a Miramichi drinking club. This biography follows Durelle's painful progress through both worlds. The Fighting Fisherman is a remarkably frank portrait of a complex man and a punishing sport. This edition replaces the Goodread edition of this title, ISBN 0-8878-0114-5.
