Muhammad Ali was one of the 20th century’s most fantastic and famous figures. Jonathan Eig radically reshapes our understanding of the complicated man. Eig, who had access to key people in Ali’s life, including his three surviving wives and his managers, conducted over 500 interviews and uncovered previously unreleased FBI and Justice Department files. He sheds important new light on Ali’s politics, religion, personal life and neurological condition, illustrating a story about America, race, a brutal sport and a courageous man who shook up the world.
