Review:
This was such an inspiring little book to read.

It does something to you do read these types of texts and even though it was written during a different time and a somewhat different political climate, there are many things in this that still ring true. By the way he writes, you can also completely understand how he came to be the icon he was and still is; it's honest, intelligent and full of compassion.

Of the two texts included in this book, I much preferred the title story, but it was interesting to read both nonetheless. I would very much recommend it; I think anyone anywhere could get something out of reading it.
