David West (Editor) - The Mammoth Book of Muhammed Ali (2nd Hand Paperback)
From his gold medal at the 1960 Olympic Games to his defeat of Sonny Liston to claim the world heavyweight championship in 1964, the unforgettable 'Thrilla in Manila' against Joe Frazier and the 'Rumble in the Jungle' against George Foreman, 'The Greatest of All Time', Muhammad Ali, has captured the attention of the world.
His conversion to Islam, his refusal to serve in the in the Vietnam War ('I ain't got no quarrel with them Vietcong') and his speaking tours in the 1960's have all contributed to his status as one of the most revered sporting figures ever.
Here, drawn from books, specialty periodicals, newspapers, college magazines (covering his speaking tours), and the work of major literary figures such as Norman Mailer and Thomas Hauser is the best collection ever of writing on "The Greatest."

"This book is billed as "the best collection of writing" on Muhammad Ali. Indeed, this book is not the typical fare of articles from the mainstream American sporting press. Many of the articles are from the UK and give another perspective on Ali during his life and times. Some of the articles included are from Ebony magazine. What I truly enjoyed is that some of the articles came from the perspective of Ali's opponents, such as George Foreman and Oscar Bonavena." - Goodreads Review.
