Author Jonathan Eig sets out to write the first unauthorized biography of Muhammad Ali, covering not just the champ’s fights but every important aspect of his life. His goal? Simple: To write the Greatest Biography of All Time. That meant interviewing all of the key people in Ali’s life, and maybe even talking to the legend himself. It took four years to write, and hundreds of interviews with people like Don King and Larry Holmes, as well as Ali’s wives and family members. Tune in as Jonathan Eig tells us about the stories that didn’t make it into the book—the story of him Chasing Ali. Learn more about the biography "Ali: A Life": http://bit.ly/EigAli

Raving fan of Jon
Having read all of Jon's previous books I can definitely say that he outdid himself this time.
Chasing Ali is a must read regardless if you're a boxing fan.
Love these stories of Muhammad Ali
I am not a sports person, especially not a boxing fan, but i love these stories of Muhammad Ali. Hearing the actual soundtrack of interviews with people who were instrumental in his life, such as his "ring doctor" who first noticed his brain damage and tried to warn him in the early 70's, is amazing to hear. What a complicated and interesting man he was. I love Jonathan Eig's writing style that pulls you in to the story. Can't wait to read the book based on these podcasts.
Left me wanting more
After listening to Jonathan Eig speak about Ali, I can't wait to read the book. He brings the legend to life
