New York Newsday, 11/4/10"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.

Rick Gosselin, Dallas Morning News, 11/10/10"The book is an amazing tale of how a reed-thin Filipino, who left his home in the poorest pocket of the Philippines ("The City of Dust") at the age of 15 to become a boxer, became one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world. I recommend it." Steve Bunce, BBC, 11/4/10"This is good, one for the ages. It's not a work of a ridiculous fan boy. It's quality. If you listen to me enough, you know I don't endorse books that are garbage." Gareth A.
