Default Anybody else read Sugar Ray Leonard's book?

I just finished it the other day and highly recommend it to you guys, some really cool insights, the benitez stuff was seriously poignant.

Wasn't a fan. The Hands of Stone book rocked though. Just finished a Riddick Bowe book there, decent...

It was a good read, though the whole molestation thing is somewhat questionable, to a degree.

I think Leonard trys to justify his drinking and drug abuse/adultry on his molestation as a teenager. We have a hocky player up here(canada) that blew
50 million dollars on blow and other lifestyle choices who was molested as well
and has wrote a best seller also. Neither of these guys are very likeable as they pasted on there abuse to there families. Leonard seemed to always protect his image during his career but even then even though I admired his talent I was not a fan.
