“You need to learn to duck before you get into the ring with George Kimball. He comes out of his corner two-fisted and ready to fight.”

--J. P. Donleavy, author of "The Ginger Man"

“With a prodigious intellect, a well-honed sense of outrage, and a bawdy comic sensibility, George Kimball reigns as the king of the boxing beat. There isn't anyone—fighter, corner man, manager, promoter, or fellow scribe—who's going to knock the crown off his head.

—John Schulian, author of "Writers, Fighters and Other Sweet Scientists"

"Through his writing and his presence, George Kimball ennobles the sport of boxing."

—Thomas Hauser, author of "Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times"

“'Manly Art' is a book that even the mildest fight fan will snuggle up with and wish for a hundred pages more. Kimball writes about people—colorful, intense people—and does it to a turn.”

—Vincent Patrick, author of "The Pope of Greenwich Village" and "Family Business"
