Mr. Cobbett has written a heart-warming story about friendship and one person's dreams in "Champion: A Story of the Happy Life of Roman 'Left-handed' Losinski." In an easy to read writing style, the story grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't let up until the end. Permit me to tell you what I learned from reading this book: "Life is forever changing, which means no one situation will last forever and anything is possible. If you have a dream, then no matter how big or unrealistic it is, don't let anyone persuade you to do something that is not in your heart. The difference between dreams and accomplishments is purely desire." It's a treat to read a good, clean book; well done, Mr. Cobbett. Well Done!

Former heavyweight champ Frank L. Jackson, was going to interview Roman Left-handed Losinski for a gardener’s helper (Sedona Times Courier). The newspaper hadn’t told the whole package deal of the job though. Roman took it anyway ($8.00 hr.). When he was done at the end of the day he watched the other boxers in/at the training camp. Roman was offered a job also as a sparring partner for Luis Raul Guzman (218 lbs.). He knocked him out. Next Roman was offered more money if he could last in the ring with the owner Frank L. Jackson, Roman won. Doc Johnny DeAngelo took him under his wing. Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written delightful could be true-to-life sports short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great host of characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars for this book. Thank you for the free short story (book) Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)
