Hey I have been looking around today on the board and can't find the thread about the title for the Teddy Atlas book how to become a trainer. Does anyone know the title?

This post has minor spoilers:






I got it the other day. I think I have about 30 pages to go. Really good read if you're a boxing fan. His life is like a rollar coaster, and he tells a lot of interesting stories. He does talk about how he became a trainer, but its not really a how to guide to become one. He kind of got lucky. He had connections to Rooney, who was getting trained by Cus. Or maybe he does talk about it at the end? I havent gotten there yet.

Anyways, I particularly enjoyed his stories about Moorers troubles, and his years with Tyson. My only gripe is how he makes himself out to be some incredible street fighter. "I cracked this guy, I knocked this guy out." I find it hard to believe he can take out 3 or 4 guys like he talks about. Hes not a very big guy. Boxing skill and toughness can only get you so far.
