PacMan: Behind the Scenes With Manny Pacquiao (Da Capo) has been included in the Los Angeles Times Book Review section’s 2010 Books Gift Guide. It is a great honor to be on this elite list, which includes books like Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom, Keith Richard’s Life, and some good sports books like Jane Leavy’s The Last Boy. PacMan was one of only nine sports books on the list in 2010.
Also, The Guardian has recommended the PacMan as a top sports book. “Gary Andrew Poole’s PacMan has something of both the breathless urgency of Pacquiao in the ring and the extraordinary chaos that accompanies him outside,” says Huw Richards of The Guardian.
