Great insight into Ali & Cosell
Among the many biographies of Ali and Cosell this is the best. Kindred does a masterful job in capturing the interplay between the two and provides superb insight into two of the 20th century's greatest men in sport.
The style of covering first one and then the other of these two men as they worked for themselves and used each other to attain and remain in the spotlight is fabulous.
A biography of Ali without Cosell or Cosell without Ali would not accurately represent the life of either man.
Even for someone who was Kindred's neighbor during his time in Atlanta, I can recommend in a most unbiased fashion this book. If you like the human aspect of sport - even if you don't like boxing you still will enjoy this book. My wife who could not care less about boxing has enjoyed the book as well.

A Wonderful dual biography! This book challenges the myths that have arisen surrounding both men.
After reading it, I had a better appreciation of both of these individuals and a better understanding of the times in which they (and I) lived. It also makes you reflect on the contibutions both real and imagined of both Howard Cosell and Muhammed Ali. It is very listenable and engaging throughout.
