Synopsis: PACMAN: BEHIND THE SCENES WITH MANNY PACQUIAO-THE GREATEST POUND-FOR-POUND FIGHTER IN THE WORLD

With his shellacking of Antonio Margarito in November 2010, Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao became the only boxer ever to win eight world championships in eight different weight classes. Proclaimed the "fighter of the decade" by ESPN and recently elected Congressman in the Philippines, he is an inspiration to his countrymen. But to many, he remains an enigma. In "PacMan"--named one of the best sports books of 2010 by the "Guardian"--Gary Andrew Poole pulls back the curtain in an "amazing tale of how a reed-thin Filipino, who left his home in the poorest pocket of the Philippines ("TheCity of Dust") at the age of 15...became one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world."--"Dallas Morning News"

POOLE, GARY ANDREW

about author

"Gary Andrew Poole has written for TIME, Esquire, The Atlantic and The New York Times.

Praise for PacMan:

""Gary Andrew Poole's excellent biography of boxing's pound-for-pound kingpin is absolutely worth the read.""--Sports Illustrated

""It is an amazing behind-the-scenes look into the life of Manny Pacquiao. Poole had tremendous access while he traveled the world reporting and observing the fighter. The effort has paid off for the readers because the book is brutally honest. Poole takes you on a one-of-a-kind ride into the one-of-a-kind life of Manny Pacquiao.""--New York Newsday

""Poole takes you on a journey to Planet Pacquiao and it couldn't have been a better read...I loved the book from beginning to end, it's a fantastic, entertaining and informative read...and I consider it to be as good as any boxing biography my hands have ever touched."
