This book is impossible to navigate as the promised "links for easy navigation" do not exist. This book proved useless for my research and I am searching for another version.

This is 1182 pages, but I couldn't search for phrases or click on the chapter headings. This is just misleading. Look for another edition!

This is for the current Kindle version only.

The formatting needs work and having page numbers interrupting paragraphs is annoying and almost downright frustrating. There is no fluidity when trying to read it in its current form. Please fix this ASAP. This version does a great disservice to the writings of Frederick Douglas.

What an inspirational and captivating man was Frederick Douglas. So few people in the history of this country achieved the rise in recognition and status as this man. His frank and honest style of writing makes his stories stay with you long after the book has been returned to the shelf. Having read his biography and other general writings about him while growing up in Washington DC I was not unfamiliar with him. However, having now read his writings and his personal story, I feel somehow closer to this phenomenal historical statesman. As we go through life, there are persons we'd love to have face to face conversations with. The Queen of Sheba, Jesus of Nazareth, Cleopatra, Phillis Wheatley, Mary Wollstonecraft, Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner, Maria Stewart, Mary Church Terrell, Mary McCloud Bethune, W.E.B. Dubois, Howard Thurman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin L. King Jr. and now Frederick Douglass has joined my conversational wishlist. His refusal to be minimized or terrorized in terrible and alienating situations of slavery, and Jim Crow, but to go on to become one of the country's most important Abolitionists, put him in the small list of courageous, heroic, notable and admirable people of history.

This book is excellent to view the mindset of the times and read the things that where occurring during that era. It is a great black history asset to any collection.Would definitely recommend for reading and keeping it on a tablet.

Amazon needs to remove this book from kindle. This edition practically yells at us in its description, "This Ebook Features Dynamic Links for Ease of Navigation" but there are NOT dynamic links. This is a huge collection of the works of Frederick Douglass and I had been so looking forward to start reading them right away, but I couldn't navigate at all. When you first open the book, it goes right to an introduction, and I wanted to get right into the meat of it so went to "Go to ..." so that I could go to the Table of Contents and leap to whichever work I wanted at that moment - but the go-to options did not include the table of contents. So I did a "search this book" for the table of contents, and it told me that this book had not yet been indexed so there was no table of contents to go to. The list of works and chapters in the description of this book in the kindle store is what I assumed would be at the front of this book, but instead the book has a messy area that I assume is suppose to be the table of contents, and there are no links. I returned the book probably within 20 minutes of buying it because a collection this big cannot be navigated without an expenditure of a lot of energy and guesswork. It just feels like completely false advertising on the part of the person who put this collection together - and judging by the date of publication, they've had way over two years to get it right. If they're having problems with formatting to kindle, they need to remove their loud yells about the dynamic links, which simply don't exist.

Oh and as a side note - I really should have listened to myself before buying this when it felt really odd that the title would be in all caps, and the "Dynamic Links" plug had every first letter capitalized.

Unbelievable that a man could have this much wisdom and insight, especially after the South's treatment of The Slaves. Frederick overcame all and was able to record his thoughts and wisdom. His understanding of power and oppression is noteworthy.

Frederick Douglass is a genius African American who was and is an historic icon to the cause of freedom and equality of all human beings. This collection gives all humanity a window to the soul and wisdom of a man who fought for human equality!.
