One of my faves which is seldom mentioned is "Sting Like A Bee" by Jose Torres. I prefer it to most, if not all, Ali books. I also preferred Papa Jack to Unforgivable Blackness. The latter's a greater reference point of course but I liked the flow of the Randy Roberts effort.
Sting Like A Bee was the first book on Ali (and boxing) that I ever read. Very good. Torres was an excellent writer.
