"The Power of One" by Bryce Courtenay

Whether your a boxer, just a fan, if you have anything to do with boxing, a reader or non-reader, you need to read this book. I stand behind it 100%, 10/10. There is also a sequal that I'm currently reading and can't put it down. Coming from a fellow boxer, trust me.:thumbsup:


Synopsis
In 1939, hatred took root in South Africa, where the seeds of apartheid were newly sown. There a boy called Peekay was born. He spoke the wrong language–English. He was nursed by a woman of the wrong color–black. His childhood was marked by humiliation and abandonment. Yet he vowed to survive–he would become welterweight champion of the world, he would dream heroic dreams.
But his dreams were nothing compared to what awaited him. For he embarked on an epic journey, where he would learn the power of words, the power to transform lives, and the mystical power that would sustain him even when it appeared that villainy would rule the world: The Power of One.

Please do, you'll love it, especially since the main character "Peekay" is around your age for the better part of the read aswell as being British South African.

I haven't got a clue about downloading books over the net, im sure there is a way though...:dunno:
I don't like to pay for ish I don't have to, so I tried to find a download link with no luck to the book, but I did find the audio book. I rather have the book, but since I found this I won't have to go to the library. PM me for links
