If there was any one man who articulated the anger, the struggle, and the beliefs of African Americans in the 1960s, that man was Malxolm X. His AUTOBIOGRAPHY is now an established classic of modern America, a book that expresses like none other the crucial truth about our times.
" Extraordinary. A brilliant, painful, important book."

Comments about The Autobiography of Malcolm X:
The best thing about this book is that, the author done a great job on the style of language used, the slang is kept just the way it is. It gives you a real feel like your there in Harlem at those times.
Malcolm X s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will. Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book. The New York Times A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth. The Nation The most important book I ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn t know I had inside me. I m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better. Spike Lee This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle. I. F. Stone"
