Based on a true story, we follow author, Christopher Jaymes, as he exchanges his would-be vacation in for a six-week stint as an aid worker in one of the world's most tragic disasters. Upon his arrival in Bangkok, he was informed that a tsunami had devastated the west coast of Thailand and that the only hotel still standing was the hotel holding his reservation. A demystifying and satirical, yet astonishingly human commentary at the gut-wrenching realities occuring at a time where selflessness should flourish, but selfishness prevails. Jaymes leads us through an adventure of mental anguish while drug-infested degenerates and hallucinatory aid workers pull together in hopes to fulfill their dream of serving humanity. At the core of the madness, Jaymes examines the fine art of deflecting ego chatter and the innate fear of the unknown that most of us harbor in the depths of our souls.

The first book of its kind dedicated to an assessment of the legality of boxing, The Legality of Boxing: A Punch Drunk Love? assesses the legal response to prize fighting and undertakes a current analysis of the status of boxing in both criminal legal theory and practice. In this book, Anderson exposes boxing’s 'exemption' from contemporary legal and social norms. Reviewing all aspects of boxing - historical, legal, moral, ethical, philosophical, medical, racial and regulatory - he concludes that the supposition that boxing has a (consensual) immunity from the ordinary law of violence, based primarily on its social utility as a recognised sport, is not as robust as is usually assumed. It: suggests that the sport is extremely vulnerable to prosecution and might in fact already be illegal under English criminal law outlines the physical and financial exploitation suffered by individual boxers both inside and outside the ring, suggesting that standard boxing contracts are coercive thus illegal and that boxers do not give adequate levels of informed consent to participate advocates a number of fundamental reforms, including possibly that the sport will have to consider banning blows to the head proposes the creation of a national boxing commission in the US and a similar entity in the United Kingdom, which together would attempt to restore the credibility of a sport long know as the red-light district of sports administration. An excellent book, it is a must read for all those studying sports law, popular culture and the law and jurisprudence.
