Description
Information
The 'Muhammad Ali Handbook' tells the real story of Ali's life, examining: his early influences, family and friends; his trainer Angelo Dundee; the boxing establishment; the sports commentators; his unique boxing style; his self-publicising skills -- from hip-hop poems to bravura stunts; his ring-craft; his ability to tame fearsome opponents such as Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman; his role as the first international TV boxing star of set piece fights watched by millions world-wide; his relationship with the Black Power movement and Malcolm X; why he joined the Nation of Islam; his anti-Vietnam war stand; his return to boxing and world acclaim; his international travels; the tragic impact of Parkinson's disease.

This is the story of an extraordinary human being who has always evoked the most extreme reactions from others -- ranging from homicidal hate to love and adulation.
