Book Description

1 July 1980
Through a life of passion and struggle, Malcolm X became one of the most influential figures of the 20th Century. In this riveting account, he tells of his journey from a prison cell to Mecca, describing his transition from hoodlum to Muslim minister. Here, the man who called himself "the angriest Black man in America" relates how his conversion to true Islam helped him confront his rage and recognize the brotherhood of all mankind. An established classic of modern America, "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" was hailed by the New York Times as "Extraordinary. A brilliant, painful, important book." Still extraordinary, still important, this electrifying story has transformed Malcom X's life into his legacy. The strength of his words, the power of his ideas continue to resonate more than a generation after they first appeared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique man 27 Jan 2008
The Autobiography of Malcolm X.

I truly believe that Malcolm X was the only person who has walked the earth, who could have changed the world, and would have wanted to change it - based purely on the desire to see all people be treated equally (with fairness, equal opportunity, and without random or inherited hatred for other races).

Malcolm's autobiography tells of many different stages he went through, and how many different lives he lived; from gifted child, to enthusiastic teen, to working with drug dealers, thieves and prostitutes, being a drug addict in prison, finding religion, becoming a preacher, a leader, then finding jealous people on all sides.

The book, the story is flawlessly put together, never-ever boring, thrilling, joyful, heart breaking, inspiring.

Malcolm lived and died for truth and honesty, he took on- not only the whole of America but also the rest of the world.

Malcolm had the mind to solve any problem, and the heart to never stop, even with death threats and various assasination attempts.

"X in Mathematics represents the unknown, until I know the name of my forefathers, my family name, and not the name of my former slave master, I will carry the name "X".

Beautiful person, and a REAL man.

All he had to do to live, was to be quiet and become as evil, corrupt and greedy as all the people around him, but he'd rather die than become them.

And sadly, tragically he did.

Malcolm's autobiography is of huge historic, political and human importance.

It's my favourite book, and I respect Malcolm X as much as anyone in the history of earth.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was very poor condition looked very old had a pen mark inside the page looked a very dirty yellow colour took to long to arrive and the front cover was different to the original order cover so for that reason i don't rate the condition but the book itself is a good book to read.
