I've never came across any good sites online looking for Ali info. But you know that big building with lots of books; a "library"? You should go there sometime.

LOL, I don't mean to come off as a smart-ass, just that my teacher said that to me today.

Seriously though, there's one book called "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight: Muhammad Ali vs. the United States" That's a really good book on his political views and stuff.

No good info on Ali online on any websites I ever came across.

I agree Wikipedia is awesome but sometimes for large 5+ page reports, they don't have enough info. I use Wikipedia to learn some info on my own time but I would never go to it for a report. I use books for those.

Try the Thomas Hauser biography of Ali, that's a good career overview. Also, King Of the World by David Remnick is a great book with a lot of info on Ali. There's a book called Ghost of Manilla, (I forget the author's name offhand) but it seems like a great analysis of the relationship between Ali and Frazier. It's one of those books I always flip through in the bookstore and one of these days will get, but from what I've seen seems to be a very good book. There are a lot of books out there on Ali, also a lot of DVDs covering periods of his career.

Major BUMP. I used to own that book and was a really good read.

Yeah, I remember it being one of the best boxing related books I have read. Unfortunately I can't find my copy, I'll have to dig through a lot of books and stuff to find it because now I want to reread it.

Of Course-
I don't like using the internet for reports so much anyway, books will always be better just because its alot harder to Publish a book then publish a website, people can put whatever they want on a website but in a book has to be proven.

I only use the internet for side learning, forums, **** like that....

Books are always much better to rely on....

I agree. I really think that book will be great for your report. It's worth reading too.
