Of all the populist fighters of our time, the best known, if not most colorful of personalities is … “in this corner” … [sound of drum roll] … Muhammad Ali.
Despite ailing from Parkinsons disease, Ali has managed to pack a punch in a new book, GOAT, that’s just out. Like the fighter, there is nothing ordinary about this book. Like the fighter, it’s larger than life. The brief on the 792-page book is that it weighs in at 75 lbs (as in “heavy”). Those with herniated disks or chronic back ache, beware.
With over 600,000 words and about 3,000 images, this is the mother of all coffee-table books. Find out how much this heavy-weight costs by reading the review. It’s quite a stinger!
GOAT: A Tribute to Muhammad Ali, is in this New York Times review.
