A celebration of the career of Muhammad Ali whose speed, verbal acrobatics and charm gave him the right to his self-proclaimed title The Greatest. It explores his life in and out of the ring, from his bouts with Sonny Liston and Joe Frazier to his controversial alliance with the Nation of Islam.Review:
In this affectionate look at Muhammad Ali, Thomas Hauser makes a good case that Ali might be the most loved person in the world. Certainly, it's difficult to think of an athlete who is more revered, as Ali's appearance at the 1996 Olympics demonstrated. Muhammad Ali in Perspective is illustrated with hundreds of photographs, many by longtime Ali photographer Howard Bingham. It is a stunning look at a man who was not only one of the best fighters and athletes ever, but who also showed the courage of his convictions when he refused to register for the draft and transcended his sport to become a world spokesman for human rights.
