The man who could 'float like a butterfly, sting like a bee' did more than give birth to an aphorism that became part of the language of his era. Muhammad Ali is perhaps the most famous sportsman of the 20th century and his courage in the ring has been equalled only by the dignity with which he has embraced the enormous challenges he has faced in his life after boxing. His self-awareness and ability to speak for humanity across generations sets him apart. Because his life signifies the ultimate boxing enigma - a fighter of beauty and grace whose unforgiving fists led opponents towards public helplessness, and who subsequently faced his own fight to maintain that grace as his faculties began to fade. Kevin Mitchell is one of the pre-eminent boxing writers of his generation. He goes to the heart of the Ali paradox to show how the lessons that lie at the heart of his story and the mental toughness apply to every walk of life. Compellingly unputdownable, this is the boxing book to end all boxing books, acutely intelligent and even-handed, analysing characters, history and the all-round brutality and beauty of boxing. 200 page paperback.
