"The big story here is is the 1927 Jack Dempsey-Gene Tunney fight for the World Heavyweight Championship in Chicago. The small story, though, is about Willie Brinkman, a paperboy on a 'small potatoes' corner in Cincinnati. . . . An engaging work that will bring home, through well-chosen details and a well-told story, the intimate connections one can make with 'famous facts' when the personal perspective is added."
