9780099753414: The Tao of Muhammad Ali (Vintage Originals)

Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer the world has ever seen, and the most charismatic athlete of all time. Mesmeric both inside the ring and out, Ali has been a role model, a spiritual thinker and a symbol of courage for thousands of people.

Davis Miller was a sickly 12-year-old child when he first encountered Ali. From this meeting there developed a powerful personal relationship that has lasted decades. The Tao of Muhammad Ali is a unique portrait of this exceptional fighter, and a compelling story of hero-worship, of fathers and sons, of strength through wisdom.

Review:

"Ali's life has been documented many times over, but never has anyone captured the essence of his ongoing appeal as well as Miller. A poignant and unforgettable portrait of the sports legend" ( Booklist)

"A fine, rare book... This story is a classic, one of the standards against which I'll measure all other sports writing" (Glenn Stout The Best American Sports Writing)

"An elegant, moving portrait of the phenomenon that is Ali... Compelling" ( Independent)

"Told in clear, spare prose, Miller's warm celebration of Ali will have readers cheering for the man who calls himself "The Greatest of All Times" - and for his Boswell too" ( Publishers Weekly)

"Miller's memoir is every fan's ultimate dream-come-true. This is a tender, terrific one-of-a-kind book - a must-read" (Ron Shelton director and writer (Bull Durham, White Men Cant's Jump))

Book Description:

The compelling story of one man's friendship with the greatest boxer of all time - Muhammad Ali.

Book Description Vintage Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Davis Miller, Muhammad Ali is the most famous figure in the history of sport and probably the most recognisable person on earth - truly 'the greatest'. Now in his fifties and fighting Parkinson's Disease, he remains a figure of enormous power. He and the author (a sportswriter in his early 40s and a big fan of Ali since his early teens) have become good friends. This is their story, the story of Ali now (at the centre of his family; working and travelling tirelessly for Islam; part prankster, part prophet) and Davis Miller's own story (his father dies during the course of the book; he marries; his has children; his son Isaac, is 10 at the end of the book when he visits Ali.) A unique and compelling story, rich with anecdotes and insights, it explores the nature of hero-worship, friendship and the relationship between fathers and sons.
