From the Corners of the Ring to the Corners of the Earth: The Adventure Behind the Champions is the hilarious, thrill-a-minute story of how a Jewish engineer from Brooklyn came to be the promoter of the most famous fight in boxing history—the Ali-Foreman Rumble in the Jungle. The hoops he jumped through to pull it off make for an over-the-top page-turner peopled with Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, the unscrupulous dictators of developing nations, the biggest banks in the world, Howard Cosell, and, of course, "Mr. Self-Promotion," Don King.

Everyone should read this real-life story and discover what really went on behind the scenes in the making of these championship title fights. Hank includes all the people and the political, social and economic happenings that made up golden era of the heavyweight title. This book tells it all. I was there, I lived it and Hank has captured it all in this accurate retelling of the unbelievable story that was the best boxing the world has ever seen.
--Gene Kilroy, Business Advisor to Muhammad Ali
