Manny Pacquiao, 31, was recently named "Fighter of the Decade" by the Boxing Writers' Association and is the only fighter ever to capture seven championship belts in seven different weight classes. But few could have imagined that Pacquiao would have ever reached the pinnacle of his sport, considering his background. He ran away from home--a cardboard shack in General Santos City in the Philippines--at age fourteen. After making his way to Manila, and eventually the United States, Pacquiao hooked up with trainer Freddie Roach in 2001, and, from there, his fighting career took off.

Named one of "Time" magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" last year, the aptly nicknamed Pac-Man is a fascinating figure who will go down as one of the greatest boxers in history.

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. Davies, Daily Telegraph, 11/2/10 PacMan tells the rags to riches story of this remarkable boxer who has begun a journey which will see him transcend the sport. It is a fine biography. Tim Starks, Queensbury Rules, 10/29/10 If you don t know Pacquiao s amazing story, Poole will open your eyes. If you know Pacquiao already, Poole will help you know him more deeply. And with a masterful guide like Poole leading you down the path, you ll enjoy the experience immensely. The Daily Mail, 11/9/10 Offers fascinating insight into the PacMan s crowded life. "
