Read full description of the books The Greatest My Own Story:One of the best books I have read on boxing. I must admit though it slows down in the middle, understandably as Ali talks about his 3 year hiatus from boxing and gets fairly political which I didn't find enormously interesting as that's been fairly well documented. The bits and insights about boxing are incredible. It really starts to pick up in the last 7 chapters when Ali talks about his comeback fights against Quarry, Frazier and of course Foreman. The rumble in the jungle fight especially is well documented and Ali talks about his training regime and what sets him apart which for any aspiring boxer (me?) was like reading gold and VERY inspirational. The best section of the book is a short 2 page letter from former heavy/light heavyweight champion of the world Archie Moore (for those that don't know of him – he WON 185 fights and had 131 knockouts) To put that into perspective – Ali only won 56 fights and had 37 knockouts. Anyway, Archie moore writes Ali a letter (‘Ali was his former student) before his fight with foreman basically telling him that he will get killed – he’s being very serious. This from a former trainer to a lesser man would have been devastating to hear but Ali knew that Moore was in the foreman camp so must have taken it with a pinch of salt. What Ali went on to do was incredibly brave in the right and outside it. There is also a shocking but incredible chapter about a black person getting castrated by a group of whites who meets Ali and has an enormous effect on him before one of his fights. If you are a (aspiring) boxer this book is a must.
