Great interview and what a super book. Mischa is a terrific boxer and has wonderful insights into the world of women's boxing -- a unique and passionate community.

Leonard, thanks for this fascinating segment on a female boxer. She sounds like a wonderful person and athlete. I am not a boxing fan but want my daughter - and sons -- to be aware of women breaking ground in all fields -- especially sports. I will buy Mischa's book!

I have a lot of respect for LL, but I question the need to use the show to flog crap books such as this one. Who reads this dreck? There are many more deserving authors with books out now whom I'd rather hear him talk with.
