Prepare for a ringside seat to witness the four occasions when Michael Parkinson interviewed Muhammad Ali... The World Champion was God's gift to the interviewer: funny, articulate and outspoken, with a fascinating life story and unparalleled talent. These interviews trace Ali's life, revealing its significant phases, as well as charting the rise and decline of this veritable kaleidoscope of a character. Parkinson mixes personal recollections of their meetings with selected transcripts of the famous - and, in the case of the 1974 meetings, infamous - interviews. They are brought together and put into context by a sober and honest assessment of a figure whose like we shall not see again.
