Muhammad Ali called himself “The Greatest,” and many agreed. He was the wittiest, the prettiest, the brashest, the baddest, the fastest, the loudest, the rashest. Now comes the first complete, unauthorized biography of one of the twentieth century's most fantastic figures. Based on more than 500 interviews with almost all of Ali’s surviving associates, and enhanced by the author’s discovery of thousands of pages of FBI records and newly uncovered Ali interviews from the 1960s, this is the stunning portrait of a man who became a legend.
