I liked the book, is a true story, I think it has a good processed and its14 chapters are very interesting.
The book talks about a case that puts us to analyse, a boxer who rose from the depths, by love, by the desire to succeed,this happened during the Great Depression, a common man hero, James J. Braddock, the Cinderella Man was to become one of the most surprising sportslegends in history. By the early 1930s, the impoverished ex-fighter was seemingly as broken-down, beaten up and out of luck as much of the rest of theAmerican populace who had hit rock bottom. His career appeared to be finished, he was unable to pay the bills, the only thing that mattered to him, hisfamily was in danger, and he was even forced to go on Public Relief. But deep inside, Jim Braddock never relinquished his determination. Driven by love,honor and an incredible dose of grit, he willed an impossible dream to come true. In a last-chance bid to help his family, Braddock returned to thering. No one thought he had a shot. However Braddock, fueled by something beyond mere competition, kept winning. Suddenly, the ordinary working manbecame the mythic athlete. Carrying the hopes and dreams of the disenfranchised on his shoulders, Braddock rocketed through the ranks, until thisunderdog chose to do the unthinkable: take on the heavyweight champ of the world, the unstoppable Max Baer, renowned for having killed two men in the ring.
