The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Paperback


Muhammad Ali is the most famous figure in the history of sport and probably the most recognisable person on earth - truly 'the greatest'.

Now in his fifties and fighting Parkinson's Disease, he remains a figure of enormous power.

He and the author (a sportswriter in his early 40s and a big fan of Ali since his early teens) have become good friends.

This is their story, the story of Ali now (at the centre of his family; working and travelling tirelessly for Islam; part prankster, part prophet) and Davis Miller's own story (his father dies during the course of the book; he marries; his has children; his son Isaac, is 10 at the end of the book when he visits Ali.) A unique and compelling story, rich with anecdotes and insights, it explores the nature of hero-worship, friendship and the relationship between fathers and sons.
