NEW YORK – Now available in eBook format for the Kindle and Nook, The Sweeter Science: A Look at Women’s Boxing takes readers inside this often unappreciated aspect of the sport.

Featuring a collection of stories by award-winning boxing writer Thomas Gerbasi compiled from 1998 to the present, this book featuring profiles of Christy Martin, Laila Ali, Lucia Rijker, Mia St. John, and Holly Holm, along with in-depth features on some of the most compelling athletes you may have never heard of.

“Women’s boxing has been misunderstood over the years, and hopefully this book will let readers see the talent, determination, and hard work that goes into creating a world-class boxer,” said Gerbasi. “These women have long deserved respect for their efforts, their stories are compelling, and this is my way of shining a light on their efforts and accomplishments.”

For fans of boxing and women’s sports, this is an inside look at the sweeter science practiced by the ladies of the fight game.
