AMAZING!!! I have read a lot of books in my day and this is simply an excellent depiction of his life and times! A man that, in the end, was never really fully realized in regard to his exceptional potential. In addition, Alex Haley's epilogue is equally as important as the main character's life story! I suggest it is read cover to cover!!!
