Das schillernde Leben der Boxlegende ganz neu erzählt Muhammad Ali – drei Mal unumstrittener Boxweltmeister – ist eine der schillerndsten Figuren des 20. Jahrhunderts, seine Geschichte verknüpft mit den großen politischen und kulturellen Konflikten seiner Zeit. Für viele ist er ein Symbol für den Kampf für Freiheit und gegen Unterdrückung. Dem Menschen hinter dieser Heldensaga sind wir jedoch nie nahe gekommen. Der Bestsellerautor und Sportlerbiograph Jonathan Eig erzählt dieses außergewöhnliche Leben auf der Basis bisher unbekannter Quellen noch einmal neu. Der »echte Ali« war Pazifist und Boxer, Muslim und treuloser Ehemann, ein Schwarzer, der zum Symbol für den Kampf gegen Rassismus aufstieg, aber seinesgleichen demütigte – ein Leben voller Brüche und Widersprüche.

Der Schlüssel zu Mike Tysons beispiellosem Erfolg im Ring war die Begegnung mit seinem Trainer und Mentor Cus D'Amato. Als der alternde Boxtrainer und der dreizehnjährige Kriminelle aufeinandertrafen, bot sich für sie beide eine einzigartige Chance: Cus D’Amato sah in dem jungen Schläger eine letzte Möglichkeit, es der Welt noch einmal zu zeigen. Und der in ärmlichsten Verhältnissen aufgewachsene Tyson fand in ihrer Beziehung den Halt, den er dringend brauchte. In Eiserner Wille erzählt der Boxstar, wie intensiv D’Amato sich um ihn kümmerte und ihm alles beibrachte, was er können und wissen musste - nicht nur, um der unangefochtene Schwergewichts-Champion zu werden, sondern auch, um überhaupt die Fähigkeit zu erlangen, Beziehungen zu anderen Menschen einzugehen. Dank D’Amato wurde Mike Tyson der jüngste Schwergewichts-Weltmeister in der Geschichte des Boxens. Seine ersten neunzehn Profikämpfe gewann er durch K.O., zwölf davon in der ersten Runde. Mit zwanzig Jahren war er der erste Boxer, der die Weltmeistertitel von WBC, WBA und IBF in einer Person vereinte. Er lieferte sich legendäre Kämpfe mit Michael Spinks (K.O. nach 91 Sekunden), Larry Holmes, Frank Bruno und vor allem Evander Holyfield, dem er bei einem Re-Match 1997 ein Stück vom Ohr abbiss, woraufhin er disqualifiziert wurde. Nicht zuletzt solche Vorkommnisse machten Tyson auch außerhalb der Boxwelt berühmt-berüchtigt und festigten seinen Ruf als Enfant terrible des Sports. Dass er trotz seines unbeherrschten Naturells die Disziplin aufbrachte, um sich ganz nach oben zu kämpfen, hatte er seinem Ziehvater zu verdanken, dem er mit diesem Buch ein Denkmal setzt: Packend und kenntnisreich schildert Eiserner Wille neben Tysons eigenen prägenden Jahren auch die Geschichte D’Amatos und seines couragierten Kampfes gegen die Boxmafia. Nach Tysons gefeierter Autobiografie Unbestreitbare Wahrheit folgt damit nun ein rückhaltlos offener Einblick in die Beziehung zwischen dem gnadenlosesten Schwergewichtsboxer der Geschichte und dem Mann, der ihn groß gemacht hat.

Motown means different things to different people. The mere mention of perhaps the most iconic record label in history is often enough to invoke memories and mental images of Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Jackson 5, The Supremes and numerous others. With each group recalled, there is an accompanying piece of music of the mind, from Baby Love, My Girl, Signed Sealed Delivered, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, ABC and Tears Of A Clown and countless more. Quite often, you can ask people what kind of music they like and they will simply answer ‘Motown’, and both they, and you, know exactly what is meant. Or rather, what is implied. The Motown they are invariably thinking of is the label that dominated the charts in the mid 1960s with a succession of radio friendly, dance orientated hits, most of which were written and produced by the trio of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland. This period is referred to, naturally enough, as the Golden Era, when Motown was not only the dominant force in its home city of Detroit but carried The Sound of Young America all around the world. The kind of music that had them Dancing In the Street from Los Angeles to London, Miami to Munich and San Francisco to Sydney. It was the kind of music that attracted scores of imitators; some good, some not so good. The kind of music that appealed to the public and presidents alike, and still does. It was that Motown that this book was intended to be about. However, when you start digging deeper into the Motown story, you realise that throughout its life (which, for the purposes of this book, is its formation in 1959 through to its sale in 1988) it was constantly trying other musical genres, looking to grab hits out of jazz, country, pop, rock, middle of the road and whatever else might be happening at the time. Of course it wasn’t particularly successful at some of the other genres, although those who claim Motown never did much in the rock market conveniently overlook the healthy sales figures achieved by Rare Earth, the group, and focus instead on the total sales achieved on Rare Earth, the label. This book, therefore, contains biographies of all 684 artists who had releases on Motown and their various imprints, as well as biographies of 16 musicians, 23 producers, 19 writers and 13 executives. There are also details of the 50 or so labels that Motown owned, licensed to or licensed from. All nine films and the 17 soundtracks are also featured. Every Motown single and album and EP that made the Top Ten of the pop charts in either the US or UK also have their own entries, with 222 singles, 84 albums and five EPs being featured. Finally, there are 36 other entries, covering such topics as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Motortown Revues, Grammy Awards and the most played Motown songs on radio. The 1,178 entries cover every aspect of Motown and more – of the link between Granny in The Beverly Hillbillies and Wonder Woman, of the artists from Abbey Tavern Singers to Zulema, and the hits from ABC to You Really Got A Hold On Me. The Motown Encyclopedia is the story of Motown Records; Yesterday, Today, Forever.

(Book). You may not have heard of them, but you have certainly heard their songs! From the lo-fidelity origins of early pioneers to today's dazzling technocrats, the role of the music producer is as murkily undefined as it is wholly essential. Sonic Alchemy: Visionary Music Producers and Their Maverick Recordings is an exploration of the influence of the often colorful, idiosyncratic and visionary music producers through popular music and the fascinatingly crucial role they have played in shaping the way we hear pop music today. Sonic Alchemy is nothing short of the secret history of the music producer.

The key to Mike Tyson's unprecedented success in the ring and in overcoming the demons that success laid in his path was his relationship with Cus D'Amato. When the well-past-his-prime boxing trainer and 13 year old felon met, D'Amato saw his one last shot at glory and redemption via the young thug. IRON AMBITION is the epic story of that five year relationship as well as a guide to the lessons D'Amato imparted that enabled Tyson to become the most devastating heavyweight in boxing history and, later, to achieve sobriety and intimacy with another person. Cus D'Amato possessed a brilliant mind and a flair for innovation. Well before any sports figure had ever written about Zen or getting in the zone, he realised that the key to success was to achieve a state where thoughts and emotions didn't interfere with a person's intuition. Freed from allowing those thoughts to intrude, D'Amato's successful students reached an exalted level that allowed them to perform at their physical peak. D'Amato also studied fear. Rather than pretending that fear didn't exist for his fighters, he implored them to acknowledge their fear and taught them ways to harness that fear and use it to reach another level of performance. Perhaps most important, D'Amato communicated the vital importance of discipline and schooled Tyson on how to instill discipline in his own life, a skill that has served him to this day. Paradoxically, the very skills D'Amato instilled in Tyson that garnered him untold riches and fame, opened the door to the biggest challenge of the fighter's life, when legions of corrupt bloodsuckers came to prey on him. Only after many years of hard knocks did Tyson return to his roots and use the lessons D'Amato had taught him so long before in the house on the Hudson to restore his sanity and straighten out his life. Tyson's layered path to stability and serenity is a story of uncommon richness and texture.
