I've read lots of books and seen many a documentary about Ali, but this book is by far the best insight into the man and the boxer.
When you've read descriptions of events surrounding his life in the ring and out of it, you have an image or feeling about it, but when you read the decription from Ali's perspective, it puts a very different light on it. I thought I knew a lot about him as he's been a hero since childhood - After reading HIS story, I have even more respect for him.
There are some good copies of this book around, so if you're fan or simply want to have a good read, then make sure you get it. It's quite simplistic in style, but you don't need any fancy styles when the subject is Ali...enough said!
