School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-9‘In chronicling the life of the former heavyweight champion, Schulman provides an accurate, though undocumented, account that breaks no new ground. A cursory look at Ali's youth and post-boxing activities sandwich the bulk of the book, which deals with his career and his Muslim beliefs and civil-rights activities. Photographs, the majority in black and white, are found throughout the text. Curiously, there is no mention of Parkinson's disease, from which many members of the medical profession believe Ali suffers at the present. The author does point out that despite troubles in expressing himself, "the Greatest" still is able to think clearly. Though published almost 20 years ago, Robert Lipsyte's Free to Be Muhammad Ali (HarperCollins, 1978) is still a good read. Arthur Diamond's Muhammad Ali (Lucent, 1995) and Tom Conklin's Muhammad Ali (Millbrook, 1992) are both similar in scope to Schulman's title.‘Tom S.
