There are not many books i can read cover to cover but this is one of the early few i have done. After looking at the underground rappers, famous personalities which have read his book and been influenced by him, i just had to purchase it for myself. I didn't want to read about him from bias and ignorant people, i wanted to hear it from himself. Half the book deals with his crime filled lifestyle and then the other half, the revolution side. It is a really good book particularly for the teens, especially the wannabe gangsters. It also shows you the real Islam, and how much we owe to it for giving us Malcolm X.
