Summary
Jimmy lives in a small town by the sea where there is just one tiny gym. The owner of the gym suggests that Jimmy start training, and to inspire him, he gives Jimmy a box full of books, as well as newspaper clippings about Muhammad Ali. "The Greatest." Jimmy is swept with admiration for Ali. He begins to read and run and box like crazy, and as he does so, he makes a great discovery: you don't have to leave home to be "the greatest."
