The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review featured Sweet William, Andrew O’Toole’s biography of hometown boxing legend Billy Conn, in its December 30th edition.

“Before Roberto Clemente, Terry Bradshaw or Mario Lemieux became household names, Billy Conn was Pittsburgh’s most famous athlete. In Andrew O’Toole’s Sweet William: The Life of Billy Conn, the East Liberty-born boxer’s career is examined, and there’s much to enjoy. O’Toole is a thorough chronicler, but the best parts of the book are the colorful backroom stories that seem to be intrinsic to boxing lore.”
