More Than a Hero: Life Lessons from the Greatest, Presented Through His Daughter's Eyes

More Than a Hero: Life Lessons from the Greatest, Presented Through His Daughter's Eyes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To the world, three-time heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali is known as "the Greatest." To his daughter, Hana, he is simply known as Daddy. Now in a heartfelt tribute, Hana Ali shares the life lessons she learned from her father, and offers an intensely personal look at one of the most revered men on the face of the earth.

Sprinkled among her insightful anecdotes, Hana Ali presents a collection of Muhammad Ali's most provocative and profound poetry and quotes — spanning from the turbulent 1960s to today — as well as classic and never-before-published photographs. She also confides the wisdom and understanding of a cultural icon whose battle with Parkinson's disease has not stopped his commitment to African-American pride, nor his ongoing fight against poverty and racism. Lovingly conveyed through Hana's unique perspective, More Than A Hero is more than just a rare glimpse inside the Ali family — it is an inspirational reminder that we can all achieve greatness.

Synopsis:

For the first time ever--a knockout collection of inspirational poems and rare photos from one of the most admired and recognizable men of our time.
