Seems to concentrate more on praising others than detAiling his own work. Nevertheless an interesting read. Hard going at times though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great man, a great book. 12 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very interesting and easy to read book. I have been inspired by Booker T. Washington's insight and dedication towards the plight of the emancipated slaves after the American civil war. Until I read this book, I had never thought about the difficulties that the newly emancipated slaves must have encountered. It amazes me how anyone who started life as a slave can have no hostility towards the people who treated his race so badly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written story 23 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just how does one lead a 'normal' life after being born into slavery? The answer in this case is 'very well indeed'. The author struggled to build a school for children from poor backgrounds, and when I say build, I mean he rolled up his sleeves and got stuck into the actual building work, and made sure his students did the same. This was as well as taking on all the administration work, and fund raising. An amazing person who deserved all the praise he received. Although subjected to prejudice, this did not make him bitter and he had a very forgiving nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a read... 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was some read I have to say very enjoyable and also educational in a sense that I now know who and what Booker T did for the lifting of the black race in America after the Civil War. Anyone wanting to know more should read this. You can cross reference events to see what had taken place I had done that and found out more about him. Great read.....

I chose this book as I am interested in black history and had heard of Booker T Washington but had not read anything about him, so was intrigued to read his autobiography. It was an interesting and enjoyable read; I would highly recommend it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit heavy
This story did not really sit comfortable with me. Not gripping and poor build. The story is based on truth but lacked the bight of reality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring
Sorry, I found this story very boring, it was mainly about his education and not what I expected. I am sure slavery would have been much worse than this.
