Description

In his own words, the heavyweight champion of the world pulls no punches as he chronicles the battles he faced in and out of the ring in this fascinating memoir edited by Nobel Prize-winning novelist, Toni Morrison.

Growing up in the South, surrounded by racial bigotry and discrimination, Ali fought not just for a living, but also for respect and rewards far more precious than money or glory. He was named Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated and the BBC. Ali redefined what it meant to be an athlete by giving hope to millions around the world and inspiring us all to fight for what is important to us.

This is a multifaceted portrait of Muhammad Ali only he could render: sports legend, unapologetic anti-war advocate, outrageous showman and gracious goodwill ambassador, fighter, lover, poet, and provocateur, and an irresistible force to be reckoned with.

Who better to tell the tale than the man who went the distance living it?

©1975 Muhammad Ali, Herbert Muhammad, Richard Durham (P)2016 Graymalkin Media

Critiques

"It's uncanny how much narrator Dion Graham sounds like Ali. He has the same rhythm, inflection, and passion that The Champ had.... Graham makes us feel the pain Ali felt, both from the fights and from the world." ( AudioFile)

A brief outlook on the life of a Legend.

The story puts the lights on major points of the Legend. I really enjoyed the way the narrator puts his all self into the book by emulating voices.

Truly The Greatest

If you could sum up The Greatest in three words, what would they be?

Inspirational, quick, witty

What does Dion Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Loved his voice. Brought so much to the book. Believed I was listening to Ali.

Any additional comments?

Sure he became the best boxer ever. But to see where he started, how the deck was stacked against him at every turn, what he had to overcome and continue to overcome even when he did make it, is truly inspirational. I'm not a sports fan and I found it a fascinating listen. Highly recommend it.

great story

the story, the reader, the book. they all had passion. made me realize alot of things about myself on never giving up. I connected with this book and I always have a book going. rarely do I ever write a review ether. my dad was a boxer so maybe it helped me understand a few things, about him and myself. however anyone having a hard time, or lived threw any type of oppression, can read this and find inspiration. ALI, THE PEOPLE S CHAMPION .

Great book, phenomenal interpretation

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I certainly would recommend this. This book chronicles intimate details of Ali's upbringing from his POV that are incredibly interesting and revealing. And Dion Graham's performance is superb. Wonderful nuance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Greatest?

The description and performance of the taped dialogue between Ali and Joe Frazier before their fight as they drive together on a long road trip.

Absolutely inspiring and captivating!

I felt that I was actually there witnessing Muhammad Ali's life. I learned some very interesting insights about his life and journey. I'm inspired to hear what he had to do and encounter to be the person he was. I agree that he is the Greatest, but not just boxing, his intestinal fortitude and resolve to make a difference, and his passion for the people to give his best, to do his best! What a Champion😉😘

The amazing life of the greatest one!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Greatest to be better than the print version?

Yes because of the excellent job the narrator does. If Muhammad Ali was narrating the story, it would be indistinguishable from this.

What did you like best about this story?

I believe the book was written in honesty and it is why it's fantastic. It shows the struggles of being an African-American professional athlete, in a sport that is run by white elites during his era. Coming out of this book you cannot have anything but respect for Muhammad Ali and his perseverance to stick to his ideas and faith, when every single person he was close to, including his mother, was telling him to serve in the army. He highlights the struggles and threats that he faced which would have made a lesser man give up.

Which scene was your favorite?

The best part of the story for me was when Joe Frazier and Ali were sharing a ride to New York. Muhammad Ali asked Frazier if it was okay to record their ride hence it was included in the book. That conversation was certainly one of the highlights. Hilarious at points, this conversation shows the friendship and respect these two icons had for each other.

Amazing Performance of an Amazing Story

Stick with it. The performance is outstanding and the story is incredible. Fiction doesn't hold a candle to the truth. Ali! Bhumaye!

Toller Leser!

Ich hatte das Gefühl, dass Ali selbst liest! Das Buch ist schnell, mitreißend und vermittelt das Gefühl, mit dabei zu sein. Natürlich ist seine Geschichte selbst richtig spannend. Absolut empfehlenswert!
