Inside the ring, Muhammad Ali was known simply as 'the Greatest'. Outside the ring, he dazzled, entertained, and enlightened audiences with his lightening-quick tongue and razor-sharp wit. His brash and supremely confident verbal sparring with the media, fans, opponents, and detractors often resulted in unforgettable poems of social significance that impacted harder than any right jab. Here, presented by his daughter, are Ali's most provocative and profound poems and quotes together with Hana's many insightful anecdotes and never-before-published photographs.

About the Author:

Muhammad Ali is considered by many to be the greatest boxer of all time. A three-time heavyweight champion, he was voted BBC's Sportsman of the Century in l999. His battle with Parkinson's disease has not stopped his commitment to African-American pride, nor his ongoing fight against poverty and racism.
