Compiled from his own words, this history-making autobiography IS Martin Luther King: the mild-mannered, inquisitive child and student who rebelled against segregation; the dedicated young minister who constantly questioned the depths of his faith and the limits of his wisdom; the loving husband and father who sought to balance his family's needs with those of a growing nationwide movement; and the reflective, world-famous leader who was fired by a vision of equality for people everywhere.

Relevant and insightful, this Autobiography offers King's seldom discussed views on some of the world's greatest and most controversial figures including John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi and Richard Nixon.

This book brings to life a remarkable man whose thoughts and actions speak to our most burning contemporary issues and still inspire our desires, hopes and dreams.

Review:

We owe a debt to Carson for delivering King to us whole... we are sumptuously prepared for the carrying the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr into the 21st Century. (THE TIMES)

worthy... King's life was rich in emotions and intellect. (FINANCIAL TIMES)

This book is amazingly thorough and offers many insights into one of America's most turbulent times. (SOUTH TYNESIDE HERALD, GATESHEAD HERALD, NEWCASTLE HERALD)

This is so well-written; I really felt I had began to know the man. (DAILY MAIL)
