Online Excerpt from Carlo Rotella's "Cut Time: An Education at the Fights" Posted 

I've read countless books on innumerable subjects over the years and thus tend to approach being summoned to read another one with skepticism. A couple of years ago when I was asked to read "Cut Time: An Education at the Fights" by Carlo Rotella and appear with Carlo on Joey Reynolds's radio show my initial reaction was, "Yeah, right, another boxing book." But then I started reading this collection of his insights into the world of boxing and, frankly, couldn't put it down (which almost never happens, even with books filled with pictures). In fact, once when reading it on the subway, I became so absorbed in it that I missed my stop by several stations (which also only happens once a decade or so).

The paperback edition of "Cut Time" has just been published by the University of Chicago Press. They have also just posted a lengthy excerpt from the book on their web site. You can see it for free by clicking here: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/725561.html .

Read, learn, enjoy, and buy the damn book.

Hopefully the rest of the world will now find out what a lucky group of us have long known: Carlo Rotella is the best author on boxing currently writing. Cut Time is a masterpiece. But Good With Their Hands is equally impressive and October Cities--if you can find it--is well worth searching out.
