When he was little, Muhammad Ali had his bicycle stolen. He wanted to fight the thief, but a policeman told him to learn how to box first. After training hard in the gym, Muhammad developed a strong jab and an even stronger work ethic. His smart thinking and talking earned him the greatest title in boxing: Heavyweight Champion of the World. This moving book features fun illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of The Greatest Life.
About Microcosm Publishing
Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor,Microcosm Publishingequips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them.
Microcosmemphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice.
Microcosmhas lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mudroom, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, allnight coffee shops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop. We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for.
