Synopsis

Muhammad Ali is a force of nature. Over the past forty years, he's proven himself a one-of-a-kind boxing champion, a charismatic media darling, and a world-class personality. Here at last is a book spectacular enough to capture his legend. This beautifully produced, oversized hardcover is brimming with hundreds of rare and never-before-published photographs, many of which were printed with a unique, stunning silvertone effect. Based on exclusive interviews conducted with Ali at the height of his career, as well as meticulous research with the help of his family, friends, entourage, and opponents, Muhammad Ali: The Glory Years captures as never before the champ's dazzling talent and magnetic appeal, both in and out of the ring. The visual centerpiece to this astonishing collection is a complete photographic record of each and every professional Ali ght from 1960 to 1981. Also included is a foreword by former light heavyweight champion of the world, Jose Torres, and an introduction by writer Victor Bockris. Muhammad Ali: The Glory Years is an indispensable collector's item for Ali's millions of fans, and an insightful biography that captures a pivotal slice of American pop culture. It is, without question, the handsomest book ever published on this national treasure.

Though the subtitle of this photo-rich biography might suggest that it covers only a few years of Muhammad Ali's meteoric career, in fact authors Dennis and Atyeo deal with all of the heavyweight boxing champion's years in the ring: from his first bout at the age of 12 to his retirement at 38.
