Review: What Manner of Man: A Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

User Review  - Megan - Goodreads

I didn't finish this one and just couldn't find the motivation to finish it. I admire MLK Jr. and want to learn more of the specifics of what he did but I didn't like the way Bennett wrote. He talked a lot about what MLK must have been feeling or going through internally rather than actual events. Read full review
