Praise

“By now we all have our notions about what Ali meant — to his time and to the history of his sport. Of course David Remnick sheds light on these subjects, but where King of the World really shines is in the ring itself. With telling detail, Remnick captures the drama, danger, beauty, and ugliness of a generation’s worth of big heavyweight fights.” — Bob Costa

“Succeeds more than any previous book in bringing Ali into focus . . . as a starburst of energy, ego and ability whose like will never be seen again.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Best Nonfiction Book of the Year” —Time

“Penetrating . . . reveal[s] details that even close followers of [Ali] might not have known. . . . An amazing story.” —The New York Times

“Nearly pulse-pounding narrative power . . . an important account of a period in American social history.” —Chicago Tribune

“A pleasure . . . haunting . . . so vivid that one can imagine Ali saying, ‘How’d you get inside my head, boy?'” —Wilfrid Sheed, Time
