Muhammad Ali always called himself, "The Greatest," and he was right. Well, on this episode of the Cheats Movement podcast, I think my guest is also The Greatest. Best-selling author Jonathan Eig is Muhammad Ali's biographer. His 2017 book "Ali: A Life" is the only book that completely captures Ali's life. Jon conducted over 600 interviews and dedicated over four years of his life to learning everything there is to know about the most compelling figure of the 20th century. Jon learned facts about Ali that Ali didn't even know. His book is amazing; and it has amassed a plethora of awards, including the PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sportswriting.

Jon and I talk about Ali (of course), but also his journey to write such an audacious body of work. The journey to write the book is just as compelling as the book itself, and a lot of Jon's odyssey is chronicled by Jon himself in his podcast Chasing Ali.
