9780091886806: Muhammad Ali: The Glory Years

Muhammad Ali has proved to be one of the most charismatic and compelling figures of the last century. Voted Sports Personality of the Century in 1999, he has towered over his generation, both in the ring and out of it. This incredible story of Muhammad Ali was first published in 1975. A quarter of a century on, Ali remains a legend in his own lifetime. The Glory Years is based on exhaustive interviews with Ali's friends, family and associates, now extensively updated to bring his story into the 21st century. It revisits his fantastic reign and celebrates his life, both in the ring and out, with a stunning collection of photographs taken over the last fifty years. Some are being published here for the first time ever, with a silver printing process that makes this book a truly unique volume and a fitting celebration of a glorious reign.

About the Author:

Felix Dennis was imprisoned in 1971 as co-editor of OZ magazine. After his acquittal on appeal, he founded his own magazine publishing company in 1973 and made millions with the sale of Personal Computer World and MacUser in the mid-eighties. Today, Dennis Publishing remains a privately owned company with headquarters in London and New York City. Titles include The Week, Auto Express, Computer Shopper and Maxim. The annual Sunday Times Rich List estimates that Felix Dennis is the 65th richest individual in the UK. Following a life-threatening illness, his first collection of poetry, A Glass Half Full was published by Hutchinson and the second, Lone Wolf, in 2004. His third collection, When Jack Sued Jill, was published by Ebury Press in November 2006. His other interests include planting trees and he divides his time between homes in Warwickshire, London, New York, Connecticut and the Caribbean island of Mustique.

From Publishers Weekly:

Though the subtitle of this photo-rich biography might suggest that it covers only a few years of Muhammad Ali's meteoric career, in fact authors Dennis and Atyeo deal with all of the heavyweight boxing champion's years in the ring: from his first bout at the age of 12 to his retirement at 38. Ali dominated the world of professional boxing for almost 20 years, but he was as famous for his political declarations and media-attracting antics as he was for his stunning innovations in technique. Dennis and Atyeo give a well-rounded portrait of the Kentucky fighter's many talents, drawing upon their own interviews with Ali as well as from interviews with his friends, family, opponents and trainers to create a swift, enjoyable read. They cover all of Ali's major fights-including those against Sonny Liston, George Foreman and Joe Frazier-as well as many less notable ones. Dennis and Atyeo are also careful not to pigeon-hole Ali into any one type, seeking, instead, to convey his many contradictions and transformations. The only aspect of his life that they appear to shy away from is the domestic, particularly his difficult and chauvinistic relationships with women. Though there are already many other competent biographies of Ali, this volume distinguishes itself from the mass with its easy, magazine-style prose (Dennis is the owner of Dennis Publishing, which is responsible for Blender and Maxim, among other magazines, and Atyeo is an Australian journalist), its clean design and its abundance of spectacular photographs.
