Description: There had been mythic sports figures before Cassius Clay -- Jack Johnson, Babe Ruth, Joe Di Maggio, Joe Louis -- but when the young Cassius Clay burst upon the sports scene from his native Louisville in the 1950s, he broke the mold. Those were the years when boxing and boxers were at the mercy of the mob and the whim of the sportswriters. If you wanted a shot at a title, you did it their way. Young Clay did it his way -- with little more than an Olympic gold medal to his credit, he danced into Sonny Liston's baleful view and provoked the terrifying champ into accepting him as his next challenger. The rest is history.

Mohammad Ali has become a mythic hero, an American icon, a self-invented legend to stand beside Paul Bunyan, Huckleberry Finn, and Buffalo Bill. As both a mirror and a molder of his times. All became the most recognizable face on the planet, the singular fighter inside the ring, and a key figure in the racial and cultural battles outside. This is the story of his self-creation, told by a master story teller in a book that will itself become a permanent part of our national mythology.
