PacMan is "a one-of-a-kind ride into the one-of-a-kind life of Manny Pacquiao."- Robert Cassidy, Newsday With his shellacking of Antonio Margarito in November 2010, Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao became the only boxer ever to win eight world championships in eight different weight classes. Proclaimed the "fighter of the decade" by ESPN and elected Congressman in the Philippines, he is an inspiration to his countrymen. But to many, he remains an enigma. In PacMan - named one of the best sports books of 2010 by the Guardian - Gary Andrew Poole pulls back the curtain in 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 . . . became one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world" ( Dallas Morning News ). "Excellent."- Sports Illustrated
