The Greatest: Muhammad Ali by Walter Dean Myers


The Greatest: Muhammad Ali by Walter Dean Myers is an inspirational and interesting book to read. Ali has conquered many milestones since the beginning of his in Louisville Kentucky. But what is interesting is how he said things that you wouldn't expect others to say. Famous quotes like “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” and him yelling “I am the greatest” showed how confident he was in his skills in the boxing ring. Even I will admit, he was too cocky at times.

Ali has been through so much in his career even before he was a well known boxer. Without a doubt he is the greatest boxer of all time. Ali the fierce, tough, outspoken boxer was unstoppable. He proved this showing that he’s been knocked down but he got back up and won. He proved how to overcome problems, issues, and pain. “It also takes two types of pain, the anticipation that you’ll be hurt, perhaps badly, and the knowledge that you can stop more pain simply by quitting.” That is my favorite quote by him. 

Towards the prime of his career he became a legend by being in the biggest fight of his life. Ali life is a lesson that you should never fear pain or another opponent.
