Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-This eye-catching title presents an up-to-date picture of the controversial boxer. Aimed at proficient readers who have graduated to chapter books, the text hits on the highlights of Ali's life and introduces boxing as a sport. It reads smoothly, beginning with the subject's childhood and ending with him being voted the Athlete of the Twentieth Century. Garrett focuses on the boxer's career, as well as his humanitarian efforts, religious beliefs, and political activism. The writer also discusses Ali's battle with Parkinson's disease. The illustrations are varied and relevant to the text, consisting of watercolor paintings and black-and-white and full-color photographs. Sidebars showcase boxing terms, present relevant historical notes, and explain pop-culture references. Due to the publicity about the movie Ali (2001) this biography will circulate. A good introduction to boxing and to Ali.-Hannah Hoppe, Miles City Public Library, MT Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
