Product Description

The Soul Of A Butterfly by Muhammad Ali With Hana Yasmeen Ali It's not a book you meet every day…[It’s] all about love. I was there in Atlanta when he lit the Olympic flame, and I felt the oceans of love washing towards him from America and the world…I have been at prize-fights where the very name Ali gets a bigger cheer than either contestant. Ali: the world's most beloved sportsman; perhaps the world's most beloved human...In his conversations with his daughter, he emerges as a person of almost Christlike nature: sweet, gently proud, remorseful. His apology to his greatest opponent, Joe Frazier, for past insults, is truly touching’ Simon Barnes, The Times In The Soul of a Butterfly the great champion takes readers on a spiritual journey through the seasons of life, from childhood to the present, and shares the beliefs that have served him well. After fighting some of the fiercest bouts in boxing history, today Muhammad Ali faces his most powerful foe – outside the boxing ring. Like many people, he battles an illness that limits his physical abilities, but as he says, ‘I have gained more than I have lost…I have never had a more powerful voice than I have now.’ As Ali reflects on his faith and the strength it gave him during his greatest challenge, when he lost the prime years of his boxing career because he would not compromise his beliefs, he describes how his study of Islam has brought him to a greater awareness of life’s true purpose. As a United Nations’ Messenger of Peace’ he has travelled widely, and he describes his 2002 mission to Afghanistan to heighten public awareness of that country’s desperate situation, as well as his more recent meeting with the Dalai Lama. Ali’s reflections on topics ranging from moral courage to belief in God, to respect for those who differ from us. Written with the assistance of his daughter, Hana, The Soul of a Butterfly is a compassionate and heartfelt book that will provide comfort for our troubled times. ‘The most intimate picture yet of The Greatest of them All’ Sunday Tribune ‘The emphasis is not on Ali the warrior. His triumphs are touched on, but it is a softer side of the man that shows through…This book affirms the essential decency we always saw in the man’
