First of all I have to say that any book on Joseph Merrick is worth reading. Joseph was the kind of guy we should all look up to,we should all try and relate to, and we should all wan't to learn about otherwise his courage,inner beauty knowledge and sensitivity will be forgotten or worse thought of as unimportant. He was a man who I think wasn't given the love he deserved-afterall he showed an entire society that beauty isn't everything it's what's inside that count's. Joseph Merrick has inspired me in ways I cant even describe he is like some prince out a fairytale even more handsome but only seen through something clearer than your eyes but your heart. Furthurmore having been called "The Elephant Man" was an insult to his intelegance as well as to those who called him so-think about it.
