9781631680496: The Greatest: My Own Story

In his own words, the heavyweight champion of the world pulls no punches as he chronicles the battles he faced in and out of the ring in this fascinating memoir edited by Nobel Prize-winning novelist, Toni Morrison.

Growing up in the South, surrounded by racial bigotry and discrimination, Ali fought not just for a living, but also for respect and rewards far more precious than money or glory. He was named Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated and the BBC. Ali redefined what it meant to be an athlete by giving hope to millions around the world and inspiring us all to fight for what is important to us.

This is a multifaceted portrait of Muhammad Ali only he could render: sports legend; unapologetic anti-war advocate; outrageous showman and gracious goodwill ambassador; fighter, lover, poet, and provocateur; an irresistible force to be reckoned with.

Who better to tell the tale than the man who went the distance living it?

About the Author:

Review:

A splendid action-packed hurricane of a book! --The New York Times

The whole man is here as Mailer, Sheed, and a whole raft of sportswriters never caught him...Ali goes the whole route and comes up a spectacular winner. This is an extraordinary sports biography! --Publishers Weekly

No routine athlete's autobiography...honest...very convincing... to read it is like getting Ali alone in a room and hearing him answer all the questions one ever thought to ask. --The New York Times

Book Description Graymalkin Media, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Everybody knows the record the stuff of almanacs, trade magazines and clipping services. A handful know the man. But only Muhammad Ali knows his life as he lived it. The Greatest is Ali s own story. For six years he worked, traveled and talked with Richard Durham, a writer with a stunning talent, and the result is mesmerizing in its brilliance, drama, humanity and sheer entertainment. This is no documented scrapbook of wins and losses strung together with anecdotes; nor is it a thin potpourri of locker room gags. This book, like Ali who has incited every reaction except indifference goes straight to the place where responses to him have always been the gut. When the history of the twentieth century is finally recorded, it must include Muhammad Ali. He is The Greatest. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781631680496
