Muhammed Ali and Howard Cosell, a legendary athlete and a television icon, were individually interesting, but together they were mesmerizing. They were profoundly different, young and old, black and white, a Muslim and a Jew, Ali barely literate, Cosell an editor of his university's law review. Yet they had in common forces that made them unforgettable: both were unprecedented performers who covered enormous insecurities by demanding, loudly and often, public acclaim.

Theirs was an extraordinary alliance that produced drama, comedy, controversy, and a mutual respect that helped shape both men's lives. Dave Kindred draws on his experiences with Ali and Cosell over nearly four decades, as well as new reporting and interviews, to break new ground in our understanding of these two giants who changed sports and television forever.

    " Warts-and-all look at Ali and Cosell by someone who was there. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Hard to read some of the truths about this two but overall I found them more human after finishing. "

    " Audible version - Enjoyed reliving some of my earliest memories of the "Golden Age" of heaveyweight boxing and Monday Night Football. I was fairly oblivious to the racial and societal tensions that were manifest in the attitudes of society towards the friendship of Cossell and Ali. "
