Twelve Rounds to Glory free pdf Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee in this inspiring biographical guide to the life of boxer Muhammad Ali.From the moment a teenager from Kentucky won the 1960 Olympic gold to the day in 1996 that a retired legend (his hands shaking from Parkinson's disease) returned to raise the Olympic torch, the boxer known as "The Greatest" waged many fights. Some were ring fights- others were fights with social prejudice - such as his refusal to support the war in Vietnam because of his Islamic faith. This inspiring guide captures the "Louisville loud-mouth with the great gift of rhyme" who shed the name Cassius Clay to take on the world as Muhammad Ali.
