After my last posting covering the latest fantastic reviews recently received via Readers’ Favorite, I would normally write the next More On Ali or Acknowledging The All-Time Greats post. However, before I could start researching material for either, another five star review came in. Therefore, this posting will instead discuss the new review. It came through the Booktasters service of providing a epub copy for an honest review. The reviewer, under the moniker keep calm novel on (@keepcalmnovelon) rated the book 5 out of 5 stars and wrote in part:

“Odes On Ali is a most impressive biography. Bates honors the spirit, legacy and voice of the one and only Muhammad Ali. How fitting that Bates has written poetry–perfect.”

The review in its entirety can be found at as well as on the Goodreads and tumblr websites.

My next posting should be a More On Ali or Acknowledging The All-time Greats. But, hey, if another great review comes in before hand, you better believe sharing it will take priority!
