My after reading review (November 10, 2022):- I am shocked that there are not many books on boxing training. It's not that boxing is a new sport that is not so popular. But still you wouldn't find any good boxing learning books. Most of them are about boxing, history of boxing, boxing encyclopedia, biography and advice of some famous boxers etc. And not a single book is going to help you to practice boxing.

Anyhow, I have got this book called "boxing mastery" written by Mark Hatmaker. I can't say it's a great book but where there is no book, getting a book like that is okay.

This is not a complete book. It's a part of the author's boxing books series. This part basically covers strikes and defense mechanisms. To learn counter strikes and other stuff you need to read his other book of this series.

The book starts with basics of stances, footwork and guards as it should be. It also covers variations of punches and defensive mechanisms. 

However, the best part of reading this book is that I had so many confusions about so many concepts. The book helps me to get rid of those confusions. Those are basically - hinge principle, fainting, drawing, pivoting and waltzing, shifting, shuffling, infighting and shelling up, clinching etc.
