Abstract:

Muhammad Ali has always been much more than a gifted boxer. A charismatic figure whose comical rhymes and controversial opinions have made headlines around the world for more than four decades, Ali has become the best-known person on the planet. USA Today and Sports Illustrated named him their "Athlete of the Century."To commemorate the 60th birthday of this living legend, author Karl Evanzz has compiled Ali's thoughts on everything from Aging to Women's Rights. Float Like a Butterfly ... offers the most comprehensive collection of Ali's quotes to date. Combined with unforgettable black-and-white photographs, a brief biography, and other's views about him, Float Like a Butterfly ... vividly illustrates why Ali has been such a phenomenal influence in national and international affairs. No athlete in history has had a more profound impact on American culture than Ali. As he once said of his unique qualities, "Ain't never been no nothing like me."
