Having been fortunate enough to kick back and do some reading for leisure lately, I feel I need to recommend some good books. These are all true stories based on people that have changed our world in some way. These books go much deeper than their general themes of war, boxing and baseball, so don't be discouraged if those aren't in your interests.
Anyone would benefit and become a deeper thinking citizen from reading "Lone Survivor"
There is a lot to learn about behind-the-scenes boxing from reading "Irish Thunder"
"Summer of '49" chronicles some interesting characters who've played in the Bigs
