George Foreman shocked the boxing world when he regained the heavyweight boxing championship at the age of 45. Now, George Foreman tells how his desire, drive and faith made his return to glory anything but an impossible dream.

- Publisher THE CANDID AND INSPIRING STORY OF THE RISE OF A GREAT SPORTS LEGEND, FROM HIS THRILLING CONFRONTATIONS IN THE RING TO HIS PRIVATE STRUGGLES TO ACHIEVE SPIRITUAL WHOLENESS

No athlete has captured America's dreams and imagination like George Foreman. In 1968, when he was barely out of his teens, he startled the world by winning an Olympic gold medal in Mexico City. In his early twenties, he destroyed the seemingly invincible Joe Frazier to capture boxing's heavyweight championship. In Zaire, not long after, he was on the opposite end of a startling upset, losing his crown to Muhammad Ali. By 1977, Foreman had quit fighting, undergone a religious conversion, and begun preaching on Texas street corners.

Which is where George Foreman's story doesn't end, but begins. A decade later, to raise money for his beloved Houston youth center, he shocked the sports world by returning to the ring. They laughed at this middle-aged man, but George Foreman turned their snickers into awe-struck cheers. In November 1994, at the age of forty-five and against all odds, he recaptured boxing's crown.

In "By George," Foreman tells the incredible story of his triumphs, defeats, and comeback. He writes openly of his troubled childhood, the rage that fueled his early athletic triumphs, his marriages, and his faith. How George Foreman not only survived but prevailed is one of the most unforgettable sagas of our time.

Including sixteen pages of personal photographs, and with a new introduction by George himself, By George sheds new light on an extraordinary man who has captured the hearts of millions.
