   This book was everything!!! I couldn’t put it down!
Very detailed and accurate information of Malcolm's Life, even new information I never knew leading up to his assassination.
   Well rounded, documentation, offering up an illuminated context for this important figure.
An excellent source of history. The research is meticulous, thoughtful, offers important insights and a context that is unprecedented. The best.
   Amazon sold me a poorly made book.
Not the content of the book, but the exterior of it. I have never seen a book so poorly made and then sold at regular price, Raymond said. The card will be sent back within 48 hours.
   A must read
Great insight into the formation of a great leader, he said. Makes connections to his autobiography.
Easy to Read Very well written the description makes it seem like your there.
   Well researched
There is a wealth of background material here that sheds light on the life and work of Malcolm X. From early childhood onwards, context is everything, and the Paynes, through interviews with people who were present at the time, flesh out the context. Overall, it is a significant contribution to the literature about a very important twentieth century historical figure.
   My mind has changed
As I believe the minds of many people will be changed through this well written, in depth and turning book. Malcolm is a vivid, dangerous and deep person in this book, his past is treated fairly and truthfully.
   If one is interested in the life of Malcolm X, then this is the best biography to read.
This biography was highly recommended because it addressed some of the issues that were overlooked in previous biographies.
   Great Book
In reading this book, I learned a great deal more about Malcolm X that I didn't know before. This is an excellent book that I highly recommend to anyone looking for a good read.
   Excellent Biography Of A Civil Rights Icon.
I found this book very informative on the life of Malcolm X. The author did a lot of research and the writing style made for an easy read, Morgenthau said. The book comes across as very candid. On some subjects the autobiography differs from what his research uncovered. What made Malcolm X such a fascinating person was his life story. It's fairly common knowledge that he led a far different life as a youth than he did when he was released by a judge. What I found most interesting were the details of the murder and the animosity that ultimately contributed to it. The book also details most of the participants in the assassination and some information on law enforcement infiltration into Malcolm's organization. If you want to read and learn about one of the most influential civil rights leaders in history, I highly recommend this book. Not just in the United States, as he traveled and was both influential and influenced, he left a mark on the world.
