The Tao of Muhammad Ali



The compelling story of one man's friendship with the greatest boxer of all time - Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer the world has ever seen, and the most charismatic athlete of all time. Mesmeric both inside the ring and out, Ali has been a role model, a spiritual thinker and a symbol of courage for thousands of people.

Davis Miller was a sickly 12-year-old child when he first encountered Ali. From this meeting there developed a powerful personal relationship that has lasted decades. The Tao of Muhammad Ali is a unique portrait of this exceptional fighter, and a compelling story of hero-worship, of fathers and sons, of strength through wisdom.
