This is a very good book. It makes you realize what people and especially blacks had to go through in their lives. Just to survive they had to lie and steal and sometimes sell themselves to pay for food that day. It was sad what the "white" man had done to other people not of his race. The fact that he treated them lower was very stupid. Nobody should ever be treated like that. People in today's world are much different than back then, not only because we realize what we were doing wrong but also because we have accepted that all people are equal. Before I read this book I knew little of Malcolm X, but after reading not only was I enriched, but also it forced me to look at the world in a different light. The story line of his life starts with Malcolm's childhood and ends with his tragic feud with the nation of Islam, dealing with important issues along the way. Until he make the greatest change of his life when he commits to Islam. His rise from a street hustler to international leader is inspirational and sad because he was taken away from us so early. This book was a challenge for me, it filled me with a great sorrow of what one race can do to hold down another. This is the first autobiography I have ever read that has actually said something. I mean others have things to say but this autobiography not only deals with the person, but other important issues as well.

This is the first autobiography I have ever read that has actually said something. I mean others have things to say but this autobiography not only deals with the person, but other important issues as well. The story line of his life starts with Malcolm's childhood and ends with his tragic feud with the nation of Islam, dealing with important issues along the way. Throughout Malcolm's whole life it's as he's lost, he needs guidance. Starting out in Boston looking to find a way of life he wants. Moving to Harlem in New York city changing again to fit the life style he still sought after. Until he make the greatest change of his life when he commits to Islam. even as he finds new direction he is still lost as he takes on the biggest struggle of his life. Malcolm was truly a revolutionary man of the times, exposing the dark side of American that nobody wanted to deal with. Other leaders such as Martin Luther King were more passive leaders and didn't necessarily deal with the heart of the problem. Reading this book challenged me and some of my views I had of the past and of today.

I'd seen the movie a couple of times (I'm something of a rabbid Spike Lee fan) and I was familiar with the highlights of Malcolm X's spotted history. But I'd never really grasped the perspective of an angry black man at this point in my nations history. I was aware there was anger, and I was aware as to the general source of that anger, but to read Alex Haley's masterful transcription of the philosophy of Malcolm X, along with his autobiography was cause for my re-evaluation of race relations in America. Needless to say, I don't find myself to be the devil, and I don't actually agree with him on a number of his other conclusions, but his logic in reaching those conclusion was hardly flawed. This is a must read for all aspiring citizens, and a helpful text for the internationaly curious as to the basis of our still festering race debate.
