The Mammoth Book of Muhammad Ali

by David West (Editor)

Great Men are considered great, not only because of what they achieve but also because of the road they travel to reach their final destination and this is what Muhammad Ali had. I was excited to read Muhammad Ali's Life due to the influence that Malcolm X had on Ali’s Life and they made quite some bad decisions due to unawareness which was joining the nation of Islam. Both of these individuals were later able to get themselves out of the nation of Islam and amended for their actions and their preaching against hating the whites in America. Muhammad Ali is the complete definition of Self-Respect, he was a self-driven wrestler that worked hard to achieve what he had. He believed in himself more than anyone could have believed in him. They were both Black-right activist in America that still have an effect to-date. This book was written from many perspectives that included Muhammad’s perspective, opponent perspective, The people themselves and from many distinguished and knowledgeable authors. “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in Life. ” and “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth” These are two of his statements that caught my attention and I agree with them 100% as I practice them in my life everyday. We are our only limit, we should never fail to try and we should always give back.
