Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World is a fascinating look at what makes Ali so special as an athlete, spokesman, and provocateur, and illustrates why so many consider him to be The Greatest.

my ipod and audible make the daily 10 mile walks a "breeze"....
Didn't really realize what i was into when i started listening to the book...didn't take long to realize that it was an assortment of famous people just saying the same thing over and over and over.....He's the greatest...and i agree but it would have been nice to hear about some of the fights....
