Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr. won the world heavyweight championship at the age of 22, the same year he joined the Nation of Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Ali. He would go on to become the first and only three-time (in succession) World Heavyweight Champion. Nicknamed “The Greatest,” Ali was as well known for his unique boxing style, consisting of the Ali Shuffle and the rope-a-dope, as he was for the catchphrase “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” He was an uncompromising athlete who brought beauty and grace to a very rough sport and became one of the world’s most famous cultural icons. Read Who Was Muhammad Ali? and discover “The Greatest.”

    I really liked this book, I think it really talked about Muhammad Ali and what he accomplished. First in the book it talked about Muhammad Ali being born and his family. Next the book talked about his first Heavyweight championship. At the end the book talked about his last fight and his death. The who was series is one of my favorite series of books. This book talks about Muhammad Ali's life very well, and you should read it.
