Mark Miller is a kickboxing champion.  In his book Pain Don’t Hurt, Mark discusses his successes and failures in the ring, as well as personal struggles.

Mark was born with a heart defect that required open heart surgery to repair and he is a type 1 diabetic.  He grew up with alcoholic parents.  His father was physically abusive to him and his mother.  In an attempt to hide from his personal demons, Mark also became an addict.

I really enjoyed the book, because the author was honest about his personal failures.  He also did a good job of describing the difficulties of overcoming addiction and health problems.

In the end, Mark Miller is able to conquer his addiction.  He also overcomes his medical problems through stringent diet and exercise routines.

Mark Miller is a true champion in and out of the fighting ring.
