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.

A sweeping biography of one of the greatest and most provocative athletes of all time—“a life that needs to be understood whether you care a whit about boxing or not” (The Boston Globe). Athlete, activist, rebel, poet, legend—Muhammad Ali stood larger than life in the imagination of hundreds of millions of people around the world. A gold medalist at the 1960 Olympics, he won the heavyweight championship at age twenty-two by conquering Sonny Liston in dramatic fashion. In the weeks after the upset victory, he confirmed his membership in the Nation of Islam and told reporters he would no longer answer to his “slave name”: Cassius Clay. The political establishment stripped him of his heavyweight title when he refused induction into the United States Army during the height of the war in Vietnam. Ultimately, Ali returned to reclaim his crown, prevailing in epic fights against the likes of Joe Frazier and George Foreman. His talent and charisma—and above all, his adherence to principle—made him a cultural icon and one of the most beloved sporting figures of all time. But that is only half the tale. Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is also the story of Ali, the man. Author Thomas Hauser got closer to Ali than any previous biographer. His work—told in Ali’s own words and those of hundreds of family members, friends, rivals, and others who interacted with “The Greatest” over the decades—reveals a deeply spiritual, complex man, whose public and private battles, including his struggle against the devastating effects of Parkinson’s disease, gave new meaning to the word courage and changed forever our conception of what makes a champion. Heralded by the New York Times as “the first definitive biography of the boxer who transcended sports as no other athlete ever has,” Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic and controversial superstars. This ebook includes rare photos authorized by Muhammad Ali Enterprises.

A personal tribute to the remarkable friendship between Tim Shanahan and Muhammad Ali, including dozens of never-before-told stories about Ali, his family, his entourage, and various celebrities along the way—as well as never-before-published personal photos. In 1976 Tim Shanahan was a medical-instruments salesman living in Chicago and was associated with a charity that arranged for athletes to speak to underprivileged kids. Muhammad Ali was also living in Chicago, having just reclaimed his title as heavyweight champion of the world after defeating George Foreman and Joe Frazier (“The Thrilla in Manila”). He was at the peak of his fame and athletic skill. Shanahan contacted Ali to ask whether he would participate in the program. Not only did Ali agree, he invited Shanahan to his house and then spent several hours talking to Shanahan. It was the beginning of a forty-year friendship. In Running with the Champ, Shanahan shares the stories of various celebrities whom Ali met over the years, such as Michael Jackson (who showed Ali and Shanahan his doll collection), Elvis Presley, John Travolta, Andy Warhol, and many others. Ali invited Shanahan to sparring sessions (and once sparred with him) and the two men would often go running together in the early morning. Shanahan accompanied Ali to his Pennsylvania training camp as the Champ prepared to fight Ken Norton, Earnie Shavers, and Leon Spinks and he witnessed numerous unpublicized incidents of Ali’s generosity to people in need. When Ali moved to Los Angeles, Shanahan also relocated there. Running with the Champ is a touching, candid narrative of an extraordinary friendship that persevered through the best and worst of times.
