Hanya sedikit tokoh dunia yang bisa menggerakkan penikmat olahraga dan masyarakat secara luas seperti Muhammad Ali. Banyak juga yang mencoba menafsirkan kembali pengaruh dan warisannya ke dalam tulisan. Kini, Muhammad Ali: A Tribute to the Greatest memberikan kesempatan bagi kita untuk mengapresiasi secara mendalam kebenaran di balik sosok ini-sekaligus memahami Ali dan cara-cara yang ia gunakan untuk menafsirkan kembali pandangan dunia mengenai sosoknya yang penuh kontroversi. Lewat buku ini, Thomas Hauser, penulis buku laris versi The New York Times yang mendapatkan kepercayaan penuh dari Ali untuk menuliskan biografinya, memberikan sudut pandang terbaru tentang kehidupan sang petinju legendaris. Berdasarkan kedekatan personal, wawancara dengan kawan-kawan dekat dan orang-orang yang sezaman dengan Ali, serta laporan jurnalistik mengenai tinju yang mutakhir selama beberapa dekade, Hauser mengeksplorasi Ali secara terperinci, baik di dalam maupun di luar ring tinju. Muhammad Ali: A Tribute to the Greatest menguliti perubahan ini untuk mengungkapkan sosok Ali yang sebenarnya. Sosok yang penuh cinta kasih, menjunjung tinggi perdamaian, kebanggaannya akan Islam dan persamaan hak manusia, hingga responsnya terhadap dunia sekitar yang membenci sekaligus mencintainya.

Former boxing legend Muhammad Ali, one of the best-known and best-loved celebrities and an international good-will ambassador, offers inspiration and hope as he describes the spiritual philosophy that sustains him. "During my boxing career, you did not see the real Muhammad Ali. You just saw a little boxing. You saw only a part of me. After I retired from boxing my true work began. I have embarked on a journey of love." So Muhammad Ali begins this spiritual memoir, his description of the values that have shaped and sustained him and that continue to guide his life. In The Soul of a Butterfly the great champion takes readers on a spiritual journey through the seasons of life, from childhood to the present, and shares the beliefs that have served him well. After fighting some of the fiercest bouts in boxing history against Joe Frazier and George Foreman, today Muhammad Ali faces his most powerful foe—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." Ali reflects on his faith in God and the strength it gave him during his greatest challenge, when he lost the prime years of his boxing career because he would not compromise his beliefs. He describes how his study of true Islam has helped him accept the changes in his life and has brought him to a greater awareness of life's true purpose. As a United Nations "Messenger of Peace," he has traveled widely, and he describes his 2002 mission to Afghanistan to heighten public awareness of that country's desperate situation, as well as his more recent meeting with the Dalai Lama. Ali's reflections on topics ranging from moral courage to belief in God to respect for those who differ from us will inspire and enlighten all who read them. Written with the assistance of his daughter Hana, The Soul of a Butterfly is a compassionate and heartfelt book that will provide comfort for our troubled times.

I'll tell you how I would like to be remembered: As a black man who won the heavyweight title - Who was humorous and never looked down on those who looked up to him - A man who stood for freedom, justice and equality - And I wouldn't even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was. Muhammad Ali No one has straddled the world of sport, politics and popular culture as Muhammad Ali did. He was born in Louisville in 1942 in an America where blacks were subjected to a brutal apartheid and were treated as second class citizens. He rose, through his boxing skill and character, to become the most famous person in the world at the time. He was most famous for styling himself as 'The Greatest'. There is a consensus that he was the greatest of boxers during an era of great boxers. However, he was far more than that. He was a very great man a moral leader, anti-war and fierce opponent of racial prejudice. A career beyond boxing as a black political leader, fighting for the rights of an oppressed minority, seemed inevitable. Fate had another twist however and Ali suffered from Parkinson's Disease for 30 years, possibly exacerbated by an extended boxing career. This rendered his full potential as an advocate for black rights impossible. This book tells the story of a much loved and complex man through his own words.

Norman Mailer's The Fight focuses on the 1975 World Heavyweight Boxing Championship in Kinshasa, Zaire. Muhammad Ali met George Foreman in the ring. Foreman's genius employed silence, serenity and cunning. He had never been defeated. His hands were his instrument, and 'he kept them in his pockets the way a hunter lays his rifle back into its velvet case'. Together the two men made boxing history in an explosive meeting of two great minds, two iron wills and monumental egos.
