Ali: A Life Reviews

    Not much needs to be said about the impact Muhammad Ali made on the sport of boxing, civil rights in the United States or the Muslim faith. There have been many books and articles written about the man on all of these topics and more. Now there is one source for inside information on Ali the man, Al...

    You can’t understand the U.S. in the 60’s and 70’s, unless you understand the role of Ali. And you can’t understand the role of Ali, unless you read this brilliantly written, immaculately-researched book. The book manages to be both action-packed and full of broad, important them...

    Muhammad Ali was, by far, the greatest sports figure of the 20th century. His is a personality that no one will ever be able to "figure out" entirely. He was simultaneously thrilling, charming, disappointing, and malicious. But he was the greatest pugilist of all time(s), and his accomplishments spe...

    This book is extraordinary for how well it conveys so many different things about 20th Century life in the United States; boxing, coming of age, race, Islam, marriage (and divorce and infidelity), social action, aging, and finally, the power of charisma and bravery. The writing is crisp and engaging...

    Wow, this was a great book. I have read one other biography about Ali, but this one is way more comprehensive (never dull). I am surprised that the number of ratings are so low - perhaps it is because it is fairly new. It is certainly underrated for how good it is. So much to unpack with this one. I...

    I don't even like boxing and I still could not stop reading this book. I've read all of Jonathan Eig's books, and while his reporting and writing are always top-notch, ALI: A LIFE is his crowning achievement.Part of that, of course, is due to the fact that Ali was a fascinating, infuriating, dynamic...

    I am old enough to remember much of what this book covers. If you are older, this book is a great trip down memory lane. If you are younger, it is a great introduction to one of sports greatest figures. Very well written and holds your attention like glue. Highly recommended. ...
