Synopsis: He floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee—and this is the story of one of the greatest boxers who ever lived, through the eyes of those who knew him and saw him fight. Muhammad Ali transcended sport to become a symbol of black pride, of principled opposition to the Vietnam War, and a world-famous figure. With his irresistible mix of bombast, comedy, innovation, and sublime talent, he brought boxing back to life, and this biography follows Ali from his humble beginnings to Olympic victory, through the “Rumble in the Jungle” and “Thrilla in Manila,” to his present-day battle with Parkinson's.

About the Author: Alan Goldstein is the former boxing correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. He was ever-present at Ali's fights and is a much-respected boxing writer, having received the Nat Fleischer Memorial Award for Excellence in Boxing Journalism in 1997 by the Boxing Writers Association of America and the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He has written a number of books, including a boxing training manual and a biography of Sugar Ray Leonard. George Foreman was world heavyweight champion from 1972 to 1974, until losing to Ali in Kinshasa, Zaire, at “The Rumble in the Jungle.” Foreman became the oldest man to win the world heavyweight title when he beat Michael Moorer in 1994, aged 45.
