5.0 out of 5 stars THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK AFTER BIBLE 13 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I'd read the book allready in german ('cause I'am german) and can't stop reading it again and again. If you read it carefuly and open your mind to it's massage it will change your life. Only one other book can change lifes the bible the real words of the living god. The message of gods word will change your life for the eternaty your life after death, but Malcolms message change your life here and your relationship to other people and peoples. Behonestly and check your mind the real reasons of your behavior. In every case if you are W.M., Y.M., R.M. or B.M (if you're withe or colored) Dennis Michalke

5.0 out of 5 stars Open your eyes to true US History 2 Dec 1999
By Elena Basegio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book will be one of the most important book you will ever read. Before I read this book I knew little of Malcolm X, but after reading not only was I enriched, but it forced me to look at the world in a different light. Hand this book to anyone who is not living up to their full potential and you will see a change. This book was a challenge for me, it filled me with a great sarrow of what one race can do to hold down another. Do your self a great favor and read this book, it will be the greatest lesson you will ever learn for around four dollars. This book isn't at all what you would think. Malcolm X is a hero of mine and has taught more to me then any teacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have ever read. 8 May 2000
By Nathan E. Clemens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had to read this book for a class, and wasn't sure how good it was going to be. After reading it however I think it is one of the most important books for anyone living in America or the rest of the world to read. This should be next on your list. There is so much that is good in this book,it goes past all the bad media we have today and gives you the the real story on how it was to be a young black man in the 50's and 60's and how the "system" almost destroyed him. Malcolm's rise from a street hustler to international leader is inspirational and sad because he was taken away from us so early.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lost leader 17 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the first autobiography I have ever read that has actually said something. I mean others have things to say but this autobiography not only deals with the person, but other important issues as well. The story line of his life starts with Malcolm's childhood and ends with his tragic feud with the nation of Islam, dealing with important issues along the way. Throughout Malcolm's whole life it's as he's lost, he needs guidance. Starting out in Boston looking to find a way of life he wants. Moving to Harlem in New York city changing again to fit the life style he still sought after. Until he make the greatest change of his life when he commits to Islam. even as he finds new direction he is still lost as he takes on the biggest struggle of his life. Malcolm was truly a revolutionary man of the times, exposing the dark side of American that nobody wanted to deal with. Other leaders such as Martin Luther King were more passive leaders and didn't necessarily deal with the heart of the problem. Reading this book challenged me and some of my views I had of the past and of today.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Autobiography of Malcolm X 23 May 2000
By Bob Hoboken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a very good book. It makes you realize what people and especially blacks had to go through in their lives. Just to survive they had to lie and steal and sometimes sell themselves to pay for food that day. It was sad what the "white" man had done to other people not of his race. The fact that he treated them lower was very stupid. Nobody should ever be treated like that. People in today's world are much different than back then, not only because we realize what we were doing wrong but also because we have accepted that all people are equal. Before I read this book I knew little of Malcolm X, but after reading not only was I enriched, but also it forced me to look at the world in a different light. The story line of his life starts with Malcolm's childhood and ends with his tragic feud with the nation of Islam, dealing with important issues along the way. Until he make the greatest change of his life when he commits to Islam. His rise from a street hustler to international leader is inspirational and sad because he was taken away from us so early. This book was a challenge for me, it filled me with a great sorrow of what one race can do to hold down another. This is the first autobiography I have ever read that has actually said something. I mean others have things to say but this autobiography not only deals with the person, but other important issues as well.
