The world's most famous goodwill ambassador offers inspiration and hope as he describes the philosophy that sustains him and his family.
In this spiritual memoir Muhammad Ali, with the assistance of his daughter Hana, writes about the values that shaped him and continue to guide his life. Although he is famous throughout the world for his extraordinary boxing career, he says, "It is after I retired from boxing that my true passion began. I have embarked on a journey of peace and love."
In 'The Soul Of A Butterfly', Muhammad Ali takes readers on a spiritual journey through the seasons of his life, from childhood to the present, and shares the beliefs that have served him well. Today he faces his strongest opponent outside the boxing ring. Like many people, he battles an illness that limits his physical abilities, but as he says, "I have gained more than I have lost . . . I have never had a more powerful voice than I have now."
Drawing on the lessons taught him when he was younger, as well as his decades-long study of true Islam, Muhammad Ali reflects on the deepest meanings of life. He writes about moral courage and belief in God, about the responsibilities of fame and of family, about accepting change while maintaining faith, about charity, wisdom, determination, freedom, justice and, above all, love.
This is a book that will provide comfort and inspiration for our troubled times, a book of deep and rich humanity that will make a lasting impression on all who read it.
