The first complete, unauthorized biography of one of the twentieth century's most fantastic figures: Muhammad Ali. 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.
"Eig tells the life story of the legendary boxer, political radical, and hero in all its complexity.” —Entertainment Weekly, Fall's 20 Must-Read Books
"Finally, after so many works focusing on this fight or that, the whole man, the whole life, is presented here. And what a revelation it is—to be able to see how this remarkable man was shaped by his world, and how that world was, in turn, profoundly influenced by this exceptional and complicated kid from Louisville." —Ken Burns
"Stop the fight. It’s over. Eig in a knockout.”—Jane Leavy, author of Sandy Koufax and The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America’s Childhood
