I like this book because it is not someone's interpretation of Dr. King, but his own words. He is a true non-violent man of peace, and although an imperfect human being like many of us, he seemed to me to live the teachings of Jesus Christ toward his fellow man. The introduction by Mike Nicol going through the life of Dr. King was outstanding and very enlightening, and helps the book stand on its own even if you never heard of Dr. Martin Luther King. The book is small, and a quick read, but I find myself picking it up frequently and going through it again. I keep it on my nightstand, and have bought it for some of my friends. I think people like Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Rev. Al Sharpton should read this book, and then read it again and again and again.

This man was amazing. He was intelligent, deep, and thought provoking. The biography at the beginning and the quotes in the rest of the book are touching. What a difficult life yet he made it so purposeful and helped change so many lives.
This book makes a wonderful gift. It is also worth to own for yourself.

like Ganghi, one of MLK's greatest inspirations, MLK was an amazing leader, teacher, political activist and peace maker. A must read for anyone who wishes to be inspired and change themselves and the world into a more peaceful place.
