Muhammad Ali: The Greatest Journey, From Zero to Hero (Unabridged) (Muhammad Ali, The People's Champion, The Louisville Lip Book 2)

by Phillip G. Harris

★ ★Read This Book for FREE on Kindle Unlimited - Download Now! ★ ★Bonus included!“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” This is one of the best-known quotes of all time, not to mention within sports. You’ve probably heard of “the Greatest” – that would be the boxer Muhammad Ali referring to himself. If you haven’t, then perhaps you’ve heard of “The Rumble in the Jungle” or the even more well-known (and catchier in my opinion) “Thrilla in Manila.” Why do these quotes sound so familiar, even to people who are not interested in the world of boxing? This short book will introduce you to the figure that stands out so much in boxing and indeed in athletic history: the Greatest Muhammed Ali. From his early successes to his choice of religion, his political...

Drilling through the dream: an oilfield tale

by O. I. Snider

"As we taxied to the runway, the storm just kept on shovelling the elements at us, relentlessly and with an abruptness that saw genuine worry on the concerned faces of all. Our hovering position, maybe twenty feet from the ground and just prior to rolling forward to gain the airspeed required to lift us high into the clouds, was an experience that would put one off flying permanently. The pilots, who I could clearly see through their opened leathery cockpit curtain, were furiously battling the elements with the mechanics of their pedals and handles – whatever it is those levers do – to keep the chopper to right; a battle we appeared to be losing.We hovered for longer than would be normal, perhaps a minute or two. My thoughts were that the pilots were trying to ascertain if we could ...

Summer In The City State: Ceuta To Tangier Through Fortress Europe

by Eamonn Sheehy

From an idyllic archipelago on the Moroccan Mediterranean, 'Summer In The City State' takes us on a stirring trip through the little known Spanish city state of Ceuta in North Africa, on through the barbed wire European borders on African soil, and into the iconic Rif cities of Northern Morocco. 

Recounted through vividly told vignettes and a series of affecting photography, Eamonn's quirky, lucid and sometimes dark journey takes place in the shadows of Europe's refugee crisis.

The Mighty Pies and My Mighty Dad: A Collingwood Love Story 1953

by Peter le Breton PhD

Peter loved the Magpies—so named because of their black and white jumpers. Every Saturday afternoon during the footy season he was glued to the radio, hanging on every word of the commentators. If Collingwood lost, he was in tears. On the day of this story, when the Pies were in front approaching three-quarter time, and his Dad spontaneously called him to jump in the car so that he could catch the last quarter at the ground. He was in the car faster than a Thorald Merrett stab-pass. But this story is less about Collingwood and footy, than it is about the author’s relationship with his Dad, and the inspiration he gained as a boy from his sporting heroes. Peter learned anything is possible with enough preparation, will and grit. Or at least much more is possible than we believe, for we...

Man-eater is a common term for an animal that preys upon humans. This does not include scavenging. Although human beings can be attacked by many kinds of animals, man-eaters are those that have incorporated human flesh into their usual diet. Most reported cases of man-eaters have involved tigers, leopards, lions and crocodiles. However, they are by no means the only predators that will attack humans if given the chance; a wide variety of species have also been known to take humans as prey.

The People's Champ: 50 Muhammad Ali Quotes

by Kim Burke

Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) was an American former heavyweight champion boxer and one of the greatest sporting figures of the 20th century. An Olympic gold medalist and the first fighter to capture the heavyweight title three times, Ali won 56 times in his 21-year professional career. Ali’s outspokenness on issues of race, religion and politics made him a controversial figure during his career, and the heavyweight’s quips and taunts were as quick as his fists. Born Cassius Clay Jr., Ali changed his name in 1964 after joining the Nation of Islam. Citing his religious beliefs, he refused military induction and was stripped of his heavyweight championship and banned from boxing for three years during the prime of his career. Parkinson’s syndrome severely impaired Ali’s motor skills and s...
