    If this belongs in the Books Thread then Mods please move...

    What is/are the definitive biographies on Ali? There are so many out there, what have you read/what do you recommend?

    King of the World by David Remnick isn't a biography per se, but it provides a great look at Ali. Wonderful book.

    There's a book out called the Muhammad Ali reader that is quite good.

    Dave Kindred's book on Ali and Howard Cosell is excellent as well.

    Thomas Hauser's oral bio is highly recommended as is Ghosts of Manila by Mark Kram. I will second the Remnick and Kindred books Moddy mentioned. Facing Ali, by Stephen Brunt, is very good too.

    Two older books worth looking for at the library or online: The Fight (about the Rumble In the Jungle) by Norman Mailer and Sting Like A Bee by Jose Torres.
