This book is so apt right now as Mohammed Ali died last year 2016. It is brilliant in the way it's written through poems just as Mohammed Ali would write. Going through the early days as Casius Clay right through all the dark times of exile and the brilliance of the wins. I would recommend reading this as an insight into the history of the times. Especially as of the historical events that have happened recently that have been mirrored from the past to now.
I would like to recommend reading this book as a insight both of the history of the times and of the way Mohammed Ali wrote even though written by David A Bates.
I will give it 4/5
