More words have been written about Muhammad Ali than almost anyone else. He was, without doubt, the world's most loved sportsman. At the height of his celebrity he was the most famous person in the world. And yet, until now, the one voice missing belonged to the man who knew him best - his only sibling and best friend, Rahaman Ali.
No one was closer to Ali than Rahaman. Born Cassius and Rudolph Arnett Clay, the two brothers grew up together, lived together, trained together, travelled together and fought together in the street and in the ring.
A near-constant fixture in his sibling's company, Rahaman saw Ali at both his best and his worst: the relentless prankster and the jealous older brother, the outspoken advocate, the husband and father. In My Brother, Muhammad Ali, he is able to offer a surprising insider's perspective on the well-known stories as well as never-before-told tales, painting a rich and intimate portrait of a proud, relentlessly polarising yet often vulnerable man.
In this extraordinary, poignant memoir, Rahaman tells a much bigger and more personal story than in any other book on the great man - that of two brothers, almost inseparable from birth to death. It is the final and most important perspective on one of the most iconic figures of the last century.
"Rahaman has, at last, written the definitive biography on his late brother, which tells the real Ali story." (Mike Tyson)

Timeless Mohammed Ali
If you are into such kinds of nonfiction books and lives of such inspirational personalities, you will love this book. I don't think there has ever lived a man greater than Mohammed Ali, it's a must read life story or I should say you should definitely listen this book.

My brother, Muhammad Ali-book review
It was a very comprehensive & touching biography of late Muhammad Ali, the legendary boxer & a great human being !
Besides, the oration was also superb, give life to the book’s words.
It was the first hand account of late Muhammad Ali ‘s courageous & exemplary life, by his brother, who had been his backbone for most part of his life.
The avoidance of some of the words,that are impermissible in Islam & culture, would have given higher weightage to the book.
Thanks & regards,
