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.

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.

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.
