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.

In September 1960, Cassius Clay, a young boxer from Louisville, Kentucky, won a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rome. Barely three months out of high school, Clay had embarked on a career that would lead him to the pinnacle of athletics as a boxer and a social icon. Within four years he would defeat Sonny Liston and thus become the world heavyweight champion, at which point he converted to Islam and took the name Muhammad Ali. By this time, he was already a legend, with a reputation for a strong sense of humor and a penchant for outlandish acts of self-promotion, which earned him the enmity of a few, but the love of most of the world.

“I am the greatest,” declared Muhammad Ali-and he backed up his words with actions. Not only was he the finest heavyweight boxer ever to step into the ring, he was also a compelling and controversial figure outside of it.

Gentleman by day, philosopher by night, pervert by choice, rebel by fate.
