I Shook Up the World is an exciting biography of one of the greatest sports legends and most admired men of all time, Muhammad Ali. Written by his eldest daughter, Maryum 'May May' Ali, the book relates the story of Ali's early life and later successes: how he started boxing, earned an Olympic gold medal, and won the heavyweight championship; how he decided to stand up for his beliefs; and his role in the civil rights movement. The book's unique layout reflects a series of boxing rounds, each one covering a different period in Ali's incredible life. Beautiful and powerful illustrations by Patrick Johnson illuminate this amazing story. In addition to the foreword by Ali himself, there is also a time line at the back of the book detailing the events in Ali's life and quotes by Ali that will inspire young and old alike to fight for those things they believe in most.
