Amazon.com description: Product Description: Si nuestro siglo ha aportado una palabra a la potencia de la lengua, esa es ego. En 1967 el campeon del mundo de los pesos pesados, Muhammad Ali, se nego a tomar parte en la guerra de Vietnam, lo que le costo la retirada del titulo y, paradojicamente, el ingreso en la categoria de los grandes mitos del siglo XX, simbolo de lucha mas alla de sus hazanas deportivas. Cuando en 1971 regreso al ring para recuperar su titulo frente a Joe Frazier, en el llamado Combate del Siglo, muchos creian que era un boxeador acabado y que el orgullo lo cegaba. Solo uno de los grandes cronistas de su tiempo, Norman Mailer, podia ofrecer un texto que va mas alla de la narracion deportiva y la semblanza biografica para adentrarse en la reflexion sobre el simbolo social, el ascenso y caida del mito, el hombre detras de la leyenda.
