That book has been around since August 1978 and may now be out of print. The author is Everett M. Skeehan. Most major book stores can check on their computers with the above information and if it is still in print order it for you.

Thanks sabbathI just checked amazon.ca for you and a used copy is listed for $149 so I'm going to assume it's probably out of print. I'll sell you my copy for $148...haha

lol. Didn't realise how expensive it would be. Is it a good book? I very much enjoyed it. It was well researched and very informative and I still read parts of now and again and I've had the book for 28 years! A lot of good information with good and accurate depictions of his fights, training camps and his personal relationships with friends, family and later the Mafia. Marciano's personality is always a bit mysterious and this book depicts him as eccentric, and paranoid and especially how tight and untrusting he was with his money.

I read it pretty good, since it NOW cost over 149 bucks lol.

I go with the ROCK of HIS Times.

Though first son is better imo.

You can try some book stores.
Also Ebay.com, or Amazon.com is almost asured to have it.
Another good Marciano biography is "Rocky Marciano: The Rock of Hist Times" its a more recent biography which is much easier to get your hands on.

The Rock Of His Times is a great biography and it's on paperback now so it's not expensive.
