This was a great insight to one of the intellectual greats of the 20th century who brought a lot of attention to problems in the african-american community problems. Pros; the detail with regards to his life, insights into the way his organizations worked, the record of the aftermath after his death. Cons; the structure of the book many times found myself skipping pages as it didn't engage me, the sheer size of the book is quite overwhelming to the average person.

Malcolm X was a complex and extraordinary man. This book is heavy with information and detail about the evolution of this man that I couldn't absorb it without pausing. If you have read other books then this one could fill out facts that you were wondering about. A very good book indeed.

Fascinating insight into Malcolm, unafraid to be critical and puts his life and work into the context of the ongoing struggle for equal rights for black Americans as well as international events.

I was riveted to this book. The subject was a strange brew,the cover up prior to and following his demise was the stuff of nightmares, reeking of corruption and conspiracy.......

Last year I got the hardback version from America. This book about Malcolm is challenging, different and asks a lot of questions about his life. It has got me to re-read the many books I have about Malcolm and comes to a different understanding. This is a book worth reading and i recommend its purchase

This is a fantastic and gripping book, simply put if you have read the autobiography but yearn for more, this is the book that will answer your questions. Issues such as Malcolms' connection with Muslim Mosque inc. and OAAU are explored in great detail. This book also succeeds in creating the context in which Malcolm was living, giving you a real sense of the man warts and all.

This is everything that a political and historical biography should be.

Malcolm is portrayed 'warts and all', Marable paints a picture of a fully rounded human being. This is no hagiography. More than this though, Marable puts Malcolm into context and shows him as a man who was made by his times and influences and, in turn, changed his times in both profound and subtle ways.

This is a great book.

Wow! What a read. This is a masterpiece of writing. It delves into the nitty gritty of Malcolm's life and his introduction to the nation of Islam which was both the platform for his reinvention and the catalyst for his demise. Mr Marable has done justice to one of the greatest black icons of the 20th century.
