A former street-tough, angry, scowling man who inspired fear, now shares how a smile changed his life.

When it comes to a positive, can-do attitude, George Foreman is the champ, and in Going the Extra Smile, he shares personal stories and key insights about achieving victory in the ring of life. His approach is upbeat and light-hearted, but his principles have depth and are rock solid. He deals with the various dynamics found in a smile--including resilience, optimism, the willingness to forgive, seeing the best in others, not taking oneself too seriously, and more. This book of practical, hard-won advice will be a treasure to encourage young and old alike.
