Praise for Facing Ali: The Opposition Weighs In:
• National Bestseller
• A Globe and mail Best Book
• A Sports Illustrated Book of the Year
“These are men of substance, worth getting to know. Brunt does them justice, but the author has done something even more impressive: He has found something new to report about Muhammad Ali.”
“Stephen Brunt takes us for a rare and sometimes painful sit in the loser’s corner, where, as all observers of tragedy know, the most revealing stories take place.”
“Facing Ali is a work of wit and insight. It goes the distance.”
–The Vancouver Sun
