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.
