Default Has anyone read Four Kings: Last Great Era of Boxing?

It's a book about Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran and how they fought each other etc.
I've never really delved into the events and fights leading up to each of those fights so i thought i should brush up on my knowledge of it.
I just bought it from town and i thought it would be a good read, the reviews on amazon seemed positive.

Anyone read it?

It is one of the greatest boxing books ever written. George Kimball gives an in-depth analysis of each fight between the four legends and the events leading up to each fight. Plus, he covered each one live and in person. A must read for all fans that love the history of the sport.
