Hunter S Thompson piece was the best one Good essays about several stages in Ali s life. A great book, but what ticked me off was that the editor of the book didn t include about 1 3 of the articles in their entirety HST s piece I can sort of understand because the interview that was deleted wasn t much of an interesting interview to begin with, but still I d rather read the whole piece, not what someone thinks I should read Two other books on Ali that should be read are KING OF THE WORLD by David Remnick and FACING ALI by Stephan Brunt. Norman Mailer and Hunter S Thompson are so insufferable that I couldn t finish the abridged adapted versions of their short form pieces about Muhammad Ali I maybe skimmed a couple other pieces too but only Mailer Thompson stuck out Ugh Norman Mailer and Hunter S Thompson are so insufferable that I couldn t finish the abridged adapted versions of their short form pieces about Muhammad Ali I maybe skimmed a couple other pieces too but only Mailer Thompson stuck out Ugh Fun but tad too reverential Ali was compelling, incredibly charismatic but complex Early chose some interesting selections in this collection of articles written over this course of his life so far But, for me, didn t really get inside him Mostly it s like the Tom Wolfe entry, seeing him from inside a crowded room Biog A3985e 1999 A lot of great material about a great subject with some really shitty editing and a pretty confusing introduction that tries to put everything in perspective but is actually just kind of shambling and aimless.
