The struggles, the disappointments........ Wow
It teaches you to stand for yourself, for your belief and conviction. To face disappointments and heartaches. Stay real and honest to yourself and then to mankind.
I’m the sweetest!!!
In this political climate, this book should be read to understand that the issues that we face today are something we are still going through post-9/11.
To give you perspective this a first person account of Ali's perspective through his personal encounters with racism in which was provided in great detail through his life as a Olympian, his boxing career, his exile from boxing, and the numerous threats he received through the years as Black Muslim and heavyweight champion. To say the least, this a book that will give a close encounter of the past and the personal view of the man named Ali.
Muhammad Ali is the Greatest.
Most people mistake Ali as arrogant but dont understand the story behind his CONFIDENCE. This book takes the reader on a journey. It: facilitates EMOTIONAL HIGHS AND LOWS, discloses the GREED of TWISTED PUPPETEERS in sports but most importantly allows you to partake in a revelatory journey full of obstacles and perseverance that made ALI THE greatest. What makes someone great is not what they do when the cameras are watching but what they do when no one is watching and when the tides are against you. I read this book as I try to navigate my life as becoming a beacon of hope for the world. I would mention that the non disclosed editor Toni Morrison is not mentioned in this book, but was instrumental in crafting this body of work. She released her edited version in 1975, but VERY SIMILAR to this and with the same writer.
FUN FACTS: AUTHOR IS BLACK
WHY READ: for those looking to better themselves and/or see if you have the qualities of being a great leader (i.e.; integrity, resilience, determination, faith, confidence, whit, love of God and ppl, etc) I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS! Some ppl will not be able appreciate ALL THE HIDDEN GEMS and universal traits shared by other greats OBAMA, NELSON, etc but if you do then you will see a trend and pattern.
